After a long hiatus from hosting events at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown district, I made my return at the end of last year with two dates–first in October and the other in November. This Friday January 17 marks my first Chinatown appearance of 2020, and I’ve branded it ‘Rum-N-Sugar’, to acknowledge the lands where African and Latin music are deeply rooted. I’ll be mixing classic and current expressions of this pan-African music: Fela to Falz; Mighty Sparrow to Machel Montano; Celia Cruz to Nicola Cruz; Marley to Movado and James Brown to Jay-Z for example. See you on Friday!

June 22 of this year is a fourth Saturday of the month, which means I’m back in Long Beach, CA for my monthly residency called VIVO! As always, I’m there with the super talented homie JP aka Eusébio Akasa as we run the musical gamut from Hip-hop to Cumbia to Afrobeat to Disco to Reggaetón to Samba Soul (which explains Jorge Ben Jor on this month’s flyer!). VIVO gets live, so come through for a fun time in the supafresh LBC!
