Los Vicios de Papá is a high energy Latin ska fusion band with socially conscious lyrics stemming from our struggling and undocumented youth experience. Our sound started with a passion for ska/reggae and has evolved into an 8 piece band that arranges Cumbia, Dancehall, Huapachon, Hip Hop, Reggae and Ska creating an intoxicating mix that ignites fans into a dance-frenzy.

LVDP was born out of a crumbling public education system and failing immigration policy in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood. We are a response to these systemic and unjust inequities; we create an upbeat way out.
