Saludos, Angelen@s!

La Junta are excited to announce that we’ve been invited to present a show this summer at the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles at MacArthur Park, as part of their talent-packed 2019 series of 50 free concerts!

****

La Diabla
La Diabla has been “cumbiando” since before it was cool, making audiences move and dance floors bounce for over 10 years.

L.A. Bollywood
L.A. Bollywood uplifts the Los Angeles community by sharing the colorful heritage of India, taking audiences on a magical ride

Doctors and Engineers
The LA-based band Doctors and Engineers energetically celebrates South Asian diasporic experience by re-imagining Desi film and folk songs as psychedelic, American garage punk, and creating inspired originals from their own hyphenated identities.

Discostan
The group of DJs known as Discostan exist as musical liberation for immigrants, diasporic communities and residents of the fluid area between South and West Asia and North Africa. Their sounds draw from the past, present and near future, from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay.

La Junta
La Junta, or ‘the gathering’ in Spanish, serves as both the widely popular brand name of Los Angeles outdoor cultural celebrations that feature tropical Afro-Latin music, and as the moniker of the four-person team that produces the series and other related DJ/live music events.

may 18+19 | ARTsea

I’m thrilled to be joining an awesome lineup of local LA artists for the upcoming ARTsea beach party, hosted by Community Arts Resources (CARS LA) in Marina del Rey in a couple of weeks! When I got the call, I signed on immediately, even before I knew that I’d also be joining friends and KCRW radio deejays Raul Campos, Novena Carmel as well as Dengue Fever, La Chamba, Boogaloo Assassins, Georgia Anne Muldrow + Dudley Perkins, dancersContra-Tiempo and Kati Hernandez plus many others for a weekend of beachside fun!

Take a minute to read the official press release:

Marina del Rey, CA (April 22, 2019)—Marina del Rey—the region’s premier watersports and boating destination—will host the second iteration of ARTsea on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 at Marina “Mother’s” Beach. Dubbed “Marina del Rey’s Party on the Beach,” the free outdoor event welcomes Angelenos of all ages to celebrate Southern California’s vibrant art, culture and music scene.

ARTsea is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors (DBH),
in partnership with community festival producer Community Arts Resources (CARS) and the Marina del Rey Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“We’re thrilled to bring this free event back to Marina del Rey,” said DBH Director Gary Jones.
“ARTsea was a success in 2017 and this year, we see it as a great way to kick off the summer—especiallyso that locals and visitors alike can discover artists, musicians and good food, but also explore the Marina’s diverse recreation and leisure activities on and off the water.”

“We are excited for ARTsea to be back in the Marina, bringing twice the fun over two days and
nights,” said Katie Bergin, CARS executive director. “ARTsea is a way for Angelenos to celebrate local artists, dance to fun music and enjoy delicious food at one of the most beautiful waterfront spots in Los
Angeles.”

Marina “Mother’s” Beach is located at 4101 Admiralty Way, and the festivities will take place in the adjacent Parking Lots #10 and #11. Attendees are encouraged to ride bikes and use the free bike valet or park and take the free WaterBus, a water taxi service that will transport ARTsea attendees to and from eight boarding locations in the Marina.
