Alondra Ladd

Innovative film and media composer. Singer and Multi-instrumentalist. Bringing reggae and dance in "Miss Cactus and the Desert"

The Boston based seven piece band "Miss cactus & the Desert" does not fail to bring in the dreamy coastal vibes as you listen to their danceable grooves and catchy hooks. The band is lead by Alondra (Miss Cactus), a singer and multi-instrumentalist who had performed widely as a soloist in the east Coast (primarily in NJ and NYC), prior to moving to Boston due to her admission to Berklee College of Music.

Therefore, with Miss cactus' gypsy sense of melody and song, a groovin' rhythm section, some flavorful horn players from Puerto Rico, angelic back up vocalists and some other psychedelia inducing ingredients, the band was able to create their refreshing and unique sound. So get ready to sit back and listen to Miss Cactus & the Desert- their songs will surely leave you humming and feeling a magical after-taste.
