La Junta LA, the American Cancer Society, and ACS California are coming together on Saturday, June 6th for “Real Men Wear Pink”, an online awareness campaign and emergency response fundraiser to help ease the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. It’s a ‘Virtual DJ Dance Party’ being held across the country on a series of dates during the month-long campaign, with La Junta’s turn to add to the donation total for two hours on the above date. Cancer won’t stop. Neither can we.

thursday march 21 | cali quilombo

Exciting News!

Just on the heels of this year’s Carnaval celebrations, La Junta are expanding our musical focus even further south, down to Brazil! On Thursday March 21st at The Office Bar in Lincoln Heights, we’re joining forces with our friends from INTL BLK!!

Chief Boima (founder) recently relocated from Rio de Janeiro to Los Angeles, and wanted to bring some of the inspiring elements of Afro Brazilian culture that he embraced to his new home. So La Junta has teamed up with his record label INTL BLK to present the LA edition of Cali Quilombo, a conceptual series of releases and events that will aim to bridge cultural gaps between Brazil and California.
