What is "El Freaky?
It is a collective audiovisual that mixes Latin-American folklore with electronic beats and 
Afro-roots. The Freaky or "El Freaky" as it is known is a set that counts with two dj's 
mixing simultaneously and a VJ who gives life to different characters, images and 
color that harmoniously align with the music DJ's play.
They have been opened shows for Diplo, Calle 13, Steve Aoki, Thivery Corporation,
Sean Paul, Tego Calderon and many more. Last February 14th they were nominated 
as Dj of the Year on the Colombian music awards.
