sunday august 26 | la junta

Olá, Everyone!

Though we probably need a few more days to recover from the amazing madness of this past weekend’s La Junta special event featuring Novalima and Chacombo, we wanted to remind you that we’ll be returning to our regularly scheduled programming on SUNDAY AUGUST 26!!

For this second to last getdown of the summer, we’ll be featuring one of São Paulo’s longtime favorite deejay/producers flying into LA for his first ever visit, plus two well-loved local bands who’ll float seamlessly across northeast Brazil’s beautiful but lesser known forró music, to the funky and soulful samba styles made popular by celebrated artists such as Jorge Ben and Tim Maia:

DJ TAHIRA
BANDA MÔFORRÓ
OS ZAGUEIROS
+ dance lesson/exhibition by Fabio & Andrea of FORRÓ in LA

4-10pm | 21+ | $5 Presale; $10 Door

Hotel Indigo DTLA
4th Floor Pool Deck
899 Francisco St (at 9th St.)
