GINGEE (live PA set + visuals by Sick Delicious)
LA MERA CANDELARIA (live band)
LOCATORA RADIO (guest hosts)
Online presale tickets for admission and/or reserved cabana/booth seating are NOW AVAILABLE!! Visit www.lajuntala.com for facebook.com/lajuntala for event details!
Get ready for higher temps and higher vibrations!
My monthly music excursion known as LATITUDE returns this Friday night April 20th to General Lee’s Cocktail House in Chinatown Los Angeles! Alongside the jazz, rare groove, hip hop and groove heavy pan-African tunes that I’ve been mixing, this 420 edition will find me leaning into some extra reggae and dub tunes for the occasion. So roll (in however many ways that means to you)!
10pm – 2am | FREE

Heyyyy! It’s a PIÑA week!! Big thanks to everyone who came through last month for YUKICITO’s amazing birthday celebration. We’re back at EL DORATO DTLA this coming Friday April 13th, laying down the voodoo extra heavy on the dance floor for the occasion. Come on down under the ground and let’s see if we can make some magic once again!
My monthly 3rd Thursday musical foray returns this week…CASA DE BAMBA! Our first two events went off fantastically in NOV and DEC of last year and we’re looking forward to continued growth in 2018. Helping us do it this month will be Brazilian (by way of Los Angeles) singer-songwriter and composer, TITA LIMA! I first had the pleasure of meeting her way back in 2007 at the old Lost Souls Cafe in DTLA (where the entrance to the Continental Club is now). We’re celebrating Tita’s birthday and she’s gifting us with a tribute to the incomparable GAL COSTA! As an added treat, LA’s top Afro-Brazilian dance theater ensemble, VIVER BRASIL, will be performing selections from their beloved repertoire of bold and beautiful movement work. PLUS, our friend SOZINHO MALANDRO aka Lalo Z joins Bobby and me on the stageside turntables!

See you on Thursday if you’re in LA!
