“i want you to listen to this. you’re going to like it”

On Saturday, May 1st we hosted A.Y.I. Unplugged featuring the 3-piece Indie/Alternative band A.Y.I. Hailing from New York and Republica Dominicana A.Y.I.’s sound encompasses traditional and contemporary musical elements from both regions. A.Y.I.’s frontwoman and guitarist Ayi Guzman cites a wide range of influences on their sounds from artists like Regina Spektor and Radiohead to Natalia Lafourcade and Luis Dias. Their 3-piece combines steady guitar chops with various percussion instruments and lush keyboard driven melodies in a style they call “experimental, alternative, folk, and rock”.

LA: How long have you been playing shows?
AYI: Our first gig was on March 17th. We just started playing shows and we aren’t particular to any scene yet. We’d like to to play for an audience that will support us. We want to move people.

LA: Why La Pregunta?
AYI: I played a solo show here for fun a year ago. I love this place. It’s got an artsy vibe to it and it supports artists in the neighborhood. It’s a good scene and place to chill.

LA: What’s your favorite song to cover?
AYI: My brother’s song, Ahora Que No Estas Aqui by Luis Guzman.

LA: How would you describe your sound in one word?
AYI: Funkification.
