The music of Elena & Los Fulanos reflects living in two worlds that graze each other, but never quite collide.”

Julyssa López, Washington City Paper

Project Name

Elena & Los Fulanos is a bilingual Latin-folk band based in Washington, DC. Since 2011, they have been creating music that ranges from twangy, heartbreak-themed folk Americana, to soothing, introspective, violin-infused cumbia. Influenced by front-woman Elena Lacayo’s experience growing up in two cultures (Nicaraguan and American), Elena & Los Fulanos creates music in which language and tradition meld with catchy melodies and inventive chords to enhance appreciation for diversity in an increasingly multi-cultural world.
