No hablo ingles, no hablo ingles, Oakland deejay and emcee Santero flaunts in "Ochosi." The native Guatemalan makes no secret of his heritage throughout El Hijo de Obatala, fusing Latin rhythms and instrumentation with kick drums, high hats, and snares. The record tells an urban, modern Latin American story that's as booty-shakin' as it is emotional and intellectual.

At Shattuck Down Low (2284 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on June 26. 9 p.m., $7
