Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

South by Southwest is one of the busiest times of the year for Austin, Texas; it's also one of the most exciting. 

I'm a big music fan, so while South By causes tons of transportation headaches, and crowds are unavoidable, it also brings a ton of diverse musicians to the city. Austin is already a very diverse city, with people from all over the world visiting it or attending the University of Texas. SXSW brings innovators, businesspeople, and fans from all over the world to participate in the interactive, film, and music conferences.  

My favorite part about SXSW, besides the free music and exposure to a wide array of talent, is people-watching and meeting new people. Being at shows allows me to not only enjoy music, but to meet people who are into the same bands I am into. Because so many people come into Austin from all over the world, it's easy to meet people from different states and even countries! 

Today I flew into Austin from El Paso for the remainder of my break. The airport was full of musicians from as far away as Tokyo, Sydney, and the United Kingdom. People were abuzz with the excitement of exploring Austin with friends, and attending the various music showcases around town.

I feel just as excited for the musicians I hope to see during the festival. Here are three of the bands I am most excited for:

Icona Pop - Swedish synthpop duo
Shugo Tokumaru - Japanese singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist
Local Natives - American band based in Los Angeles, California

If you could see any band or musician, who would it be? What is your favorite part about diversity?
