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.
