casa de bamba | thursday jan 18.

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!

viva o brasil.

Had some more work thrown my way over the weekend and this is how it turned out. Pretty much nailed the overall design on the first go, with just a few changes to typeface and logo color. If you know me as a deejay, you probably know how much I love Brazilian music. Hopefully that affinity also informs my design work for Brazilian cultural events. Axé!
