La Unica is a Washington, DC-based band combining Celtic and Latin music and adds funk, rock, and reggae for a uniquely energetic sound-- a quintessential American "melting pot" sound. Our sound is ideal for a venue looking to hear good music with a distinct style. We have played throughout Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC, Delaware, and New York. We've been giving audiences a fun, new sound for over five years.
Pan-genre party band La Unica fuses roots music ranging from Irish folk to Latin rhythms. Based here in Washington, their 2013 debut album set them on a touring tear locking down the East Coast with their melting pot grooves.
