saturday july 25 | moving the movement

These hot days remind us that summer is here! And we can still come together in new ways to connect while doing good.

That is why we have partnered with La Junta Sound System to ‘Move the Movement’! A benefit party benefiting immigrant rights. Get your people and log on to Facebook on July 25 from 4-6pm for a virtual dance party featuring your favorite Cumbias, Salsa, Afro-Latin, and Global Rhythms. All proceeds from this event will benefit CHIRLA.

We know the richness our cultures bring to this country. Yet sadly, millions of immigrants who are deemed essential, work and risk their lives daily to care for this nation without being equally included or protected. La Junta wants to help us change that. And you can too!

The dance party is free so invite your whole tribe – all funds raised that day will
benefit our direct services and advocacy work.
Here’s how to Move the Movement:

RSVP at OnSameSide and receive a CHIRLA toolkit with resources
Share with your friends on social media!
Tune in to CHIRLA’s Facebook on July 25th
So get your moves together, figure out what you are wearing, and tell all your friends
to join you at this can’t-miss summer jam!

saturday july 27 | levitt la

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.
