<<rwd<< ECLÉCTICA 10.09.11: Second Anniversary Celebration with ATABEY (live Puerto Rican bomba)!!

WOW!! We can hardly believe it…ECLECTICA is turning 2!!…and we would love it if you’d come celebrate with us on Sunday, October 9th! We are ever so grateful for the love and support you’ve shown in helping grow our beautiful community of music-loving folks! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We love you, Los Angeles!!

To show our appreciation, we’ve asked our friends from LA’s premiere Puerto Rican bomba group, ATABEY, to come by and help us invoke the goodness of the orishas for this special Anniversary night. Speaking of premieres…our compadre DEWEY TAFOYA of SOCIAL MACHINE PROJECT will be in the house printing up the first batch our new and ‘most interesting’ Eclectica t-shirts (along with some super fresh Eastside Luv logo shirts). Be the first to own one of these instant classics! As always, resident selectors REYES and GLENN RED will be on hand to help make a little musical magic happen.

Let’s get together…because we can and we should!

Much Love,
Reyes & Glenn


Atabey represents a continuous struggle of Afro-Boricua people to maintain and promote their culture through drumming, dance and song. Bomba music is a tradition that was brought to Puerto Rico from Africa by the slaves who worked in sugar cane plantations. The music represents a mixture of religious, cultural, and poverty dynamics within struggles of life and love.

The name Atabey is one of ma…ny names used to call out to the deity in Taino culture of mother earth and sometimes represents fertility and renewal. The music of Puerto Rico is alive in Los Angeles, California!
