Cosita Seria

Salvador G. Sarmiento, in red, and Daniel Herrera, in blue, are the two members of the band Cosita Seria. They performed music from the countryside of Veracruz in southeast Mexico at the 'Roving Kabaret' for Occupy DC.

"Cosita Seria means 'serious little thing,'" Sarmiento said. "We sympathize with the message these folks are trying to send. Life has been tough for the low-income communities in the United States. We should be making a ruckus about it, because it's not acceptable for people in one of the wealthiest countries in the world to be living in these conditions."

Listen to them play below and explain why they were performing for Occupy DC and the 'Roving Kabaret.'
