Ones To Watch: Riders Against The Storm

All this week, KUTX highlights the “Ones To Watch”–seven must-see artists at SXSW 2015.

Chaka Mpeanaji and Qi Dada are known collectively as Riders Against the Storm. The husband-and-wife duo first met in Rhode Island, but as the saying goes, they got to Austin as fast as they could. Here, they’ve started Body Rock ATX, a monthly dance party at the Empire Control Room, and last year, they won two Austin Music Awards, including band of the year. Listen to Riders Against The Storm’s profile and catch their shows below.
