setlist | sala – feb 2021

Shouts and big THANK YOUs to everyone who tuned in and joined last weekend’s SALA event on Zoom! Our featured visual, literary, and musical artists were all fantastic once again! Loads of gratitude to Wendell Wiggins, Katia Moraes, Noel Alumit, Norma Liliana Valdez, and Elvia Susana Rubalcava for lending their talents to our audience for the evening.

Extra special thanks to everyone who stuck around to dance to the deejays sets by DJ Reyes and yours truly. I had some people asking about songs from my set, so here they are in order below. Happy hunting and we’ll see you all again on Saturday March 13th!

thursday jan 24 | yanga release party

LA JUNTA are excited to support our friends from YANGA, SoCal’s foremost torchbearers of traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms, as they celebrate the release of two volume singles on Brooklyn-based record label NAMES YOU CAN TRUST. For those who’ve followed La Junta for some time, you already know how much we love the band and that we’re thrilled to work with them every time. The bill also includes the funky, psychedelic Latin sounds of SISTER MANTOS as well as the high energy, discolicious selections of DJ VICK JAGGER. MEL LOERA (formerly of Miss Chief) hosts the evening.
