El Mundo de Los Luchadores 2015
Saturday May 2nd, 2015 2-7pm
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year by watching live lucha libre (Mexican professional wrestling). Lucha libre is a battle between good and evil. In lucha libre slang a “tecnico” is a good guy and a fan favorite and a “rudo” is a bad guy and will do anything to win. Lucha libre has been a Mexican tradition for over 80 years. On Saturday, May 2nd, come see the glimmer of their colorful masks as wrestlers spin through the ring; smell the traditional Mexican street food; and dance to the beat of live music when you attend el Mundo de Los Luchadores -- the world of Mexican pro wrestling -- presented by Art Whino. Head to Navy Yard on Saturday, May 2nd for a full day of excitement, including a Luchador inspired live painting, Mexican pop music, and more. This is an all ages, family friendly event!

ABOUT THE MUSIC
Born and raised in Mexico City, Gustavo Naranjo didn't become space cumbia producer G-Flux until he relocated to the United States. It was the year 2008 and electronic, sample-based cumbia was the new cool thing happening all over the continent. Through the internet Gustavo first contacted with what was going on in his hometown's nu-cumbia underground and soon enough up-and-coming artists starting requesting his services as a remixer/producer. Thus, “El Ciclón Del Caribe” was born, a collaboration with DF's cult cumbia duo Afrodita that would end up becoming one of the biggest hits of the genre, and the first track Gustavo signed as G-Flux.
Los Master Plus
With their suave Latin-lover antics, contagiously catchy covers, and original amalgamations of cumbiatrónica with norteña, you get an irresistible force to be reckoned with. If you know a thing or two about Latin alternative music, surely by now you must have heard of Los Master Plus, considered the new kings of cumbiatrónica. Just about two years since their Internet music video debut, “Sexo en Fuego,” the Guadalajara-based duo instantly became a YouTube viral sensation, gaining over a million plus views, and all before the release of their upcoming full-length freshman album in 2014. With their newly found Internet fame, and winning over fans via their live shows, El Comanche and Larry Mon soon began paving new ways for remaking famous pop songs into unique modern norteña hits, consequently reaching international attention. They’ve indeed become one of the most promising young contemporary banda groups of today.
ABOUT THE WRESTLERS
CMLL World Mini Estrella Champion
Astral is a Mexican luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler, currently working for the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in their Mini-Estrella division, which does not necessarily mean that Fantasy is a dwarf as several wrestlers who are just shorter in stature work in the "Mini" division. Astral's real name is not a matter of public record, as is often the case with masked wrestlers in Mexico where their private lives are kept a secret from the wrestling fans. Astral is one of a limited number of Mini-Estrellas who's ring character is not based on the character of a wrestler from the regular division. He is the reigning CMLL World Mini-Estrella Champion.
