Whoa! This is probably the earliest I’ve ever promoted out in front of this monthly fourth Saturday event that I do in Long Beach, but for some reason I already have a good feeling about it. I’m back though on Saturday September 28th with fellow resident and recent birthday boy Eusébio Akasa at Mezcalero LBC for the event we call VIVO! Here, we rock many of the finest tunes in cumbia, afrobeat, funk, samba, salsa, hip-hop, reggaeton, afropop, and Caribbean rhythms and more. Come check it out as we get live on the second floor cantina! It’s free and poppin’!
June 22 of this year is a fourth Saturday of the month, which means I’m back in Long Beach, CA for my monthly residency called VIVO! As always, I’m there with the super talented homie JP aka Eusébio Akasa as we run the musical gamut from Hip-hop to Cumbia to Afrobeat to Disco to Reggaetón to Samba Soul (which explains Jorge Ben Jor on this month’s flyer!). VIVO gets live, so come through for a fun time in the supafresh LBC!

Join LA JUNTA crew as we perform all afternoon long at the 7th Annual ¡LATIN FOOD FEST! on Saturday March 30th, with this year’s Los Angeles event taking place at LA State Historic Park near Chinatown! It’s a two-day event with the ‘Chefs Night Out’ on Friday the 29th, but we’ll see you all the next day for the Gran Tasting festivities in the LA sunshine.
Degruvme, Yukicito and yours truly will be providing all the wonderful Afro-Latin sounds that you can sip and grub to as you stroll the grounds tasting all the incredible flavors from LA’s top Latin food chefs and restaurants.
Last August’s event in San Diego was one of the most fun events that we took part in and we’re so excited to tell all of our LA friends about this one here in March. See the link below for details and save the date!

The fourth Saturday of March falls on this upcoming weekend, which means I’m back in Long Beach with my bro Eusébio Akasa for our monthly installment of VIVO! He’s there every Saturday night with a different deejay partner and the fourths are my chance to get out of LA and get in front of a Long Beach crowd. It’s been close to a year now and I’m still having a great time. On any of our given nights, we’re mixing classic and electro cumbias, 70s NYC salsa and 70 bpm trap-style beats, afrobeat and afrobeats, classic hip-hop and the latest remixed boom-bap. It’s a night of urban rhythms from the Americas, Africa, the Caribbean and beyond! And it’s FREE!!
