Stylin': Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, for NPR at SXSW

Posted By on Tue, Mar 18, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Somewhere between the mambo and the cumbia, NPR Music picked up on the sartorial side of the y la Orkesta tribe. A.J. Wilhelm shot this GQ-worthy photo series, which wound up in a nifty Instagram bundle.

The photos were taken at an in-store performance at Friends and Neighbors, a lifestyle boutique on boho-trendy East César Chávez Street. Even Austin's laundromats are venues during SXSW, so it's no surprise to find our hometown boys surrounded by all the next new old things east of I-35. Tucson boutiques, take note; you're ahead of style.
