After Two Decades, LA's Latino Ska Scene Is Still DIY as Hell | NOISEY
Born in the early 90s, the local ska scene of inner-city LA has evolved from its origins in grassroots backyard gigs into a cultural youth movement still alive and skanking today.

Ska-punk. Skacore. Whatever you want to call it, it’s as self-explanatory as it sounds. The ska and punk worlds first came together via the 2 Tone movement of the late 70s in England, when bands like The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat, and Madness adopted a punk rock attitude to the traditional ska sound. It later birthed the skacore movement, highlighting a more hardcore punk appeal over a ska framework.

In Los Angeles, legendary act Fishbone is credited for pioneering the city’s ska-punk scene in the late 80s.

But beyond the English-speaking bands, there lies a ska movement that’s been brewing for over 20 years within the greater eastside of Los Angeles and is still going strong, encompassing a wide city limit inclusive of East LA, South Gate, Lynwood, Boyle Heights, South Central, and a number of inner-city hoods. It’s uniquely Latino and uniquely LA, with a roaring sound powerful enough to drown out a fully loaded tank squad.
