Here’s a bit of the vibe that we’ll be touching on at Wednesday’s CANTO event at The OffBeat in Highland Park. This is Gualajo (aka Jose Antonio Torres) from Colombia’s pacific coast currulao tradition, blessing us with its primary instrument, the marimba. The event invite is below. Please check us out on Wednesday August 19 from 9pm-2am if you’re in the northeast Los Angeles area or anywhere near.
A monthly world music affair featuring the songs and rhythms of deep people with deep roots planted in equatorial lands, tropical coasts, and island shores around the globe.
Join me and special guest dj/selectors as we explore and showcase music from Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and other places within the warm middle latitudes. Expect pagode-style samba, cumbia, bomba, bullerengue, currulao, merengue, reggae, soukous, son, rumba and much more.
