It is accompanied by tribal percussion beats and a melody composed by wind instruments, piano chords and harmonious synthesizers.

Yolanda Be Cool
Sylvester Martinez and Johnson Peterson are the coolest cats to see at SH. Spearheading their career since 2009, these two have more experience than their time as Yolanda Be Cool suggests.

Or in their words, “party tech.” Below is a new track of theirs entitled ‘Hacia La Noche‘. It truly sums up the rooftop summer pool party in Hollywood vibe. This duo never disappoints; more of their music can be found here.
