Zigmat is a Brooklyn-based electro-rock outfit led by Puerto-Rican singer, Monica Rodriguez. I was introduced to the band from KCRW DJ Raul Campos, who said of the group after hearing them at the Latin Alternative Music Conference in New York "Zigmat's music is edgy, rockin’, melodic and dreamy. It's a wonderful fusion that's makes for great energy in their recordings and on stage”. I felt that energy at their sole performance at the CMJ music conference and also got a chance to record an interview with the band and KCRW's music publicist Rachel Reynolds. Check it out below and make sure to continue to watch the next show on the video player where Monica showcases her beatboxing skills on Happy Birthday. BTW- She does do parties.
