Your monthly medicina for pandemic isolation is back on Saturday March 13th–delivered safely from LA to your Sala via Zoom! We’ll be celebrating Womxns Herstory Month as well as reflecting back on the last year as we roll up on the anniversary of the Covid-19 pandemic in the USA.
Here’s the lineup:
8:30-10pm CULTURA Dolores Huerta!!!! – Opening Remarks Gloria Alvarez and Antonieta Carpio – Wordsmiths Monica Palacios – Comedy Sheila Govindarajan – Live Music
Shouts and big THANK YOUs to everyone who tuned in and joined last weekend’s SALA event on Zoom! Our featured visual, literary, and musical artists were all fantastic once again! Loads of gratitude to Wendell Wiggins, Katia Moraes, Noel Alumit, Norma Liliana Valdez, and Elvia Susana Rubalcava for lending their talents to our audience for the evening.
Extra special thanks to everyone who stuck around to dance to the deejays sets by DJ Reyes and yours truly. I had some people asking about songs from my set, so here they are in order below. Happy hunting and we’ll see you all again on Saturday March 13th!
ARTIST / Tracklist
LAS CAFETERAS ft. QVLN & SERGIO MENDOZA / “Georgia On My Mind”
PETRONA MARTINEZ / “Un Niña Que Llora En Los Montes De Maria [King Coya Remix]”
SALA returns this Saturday, February 13th via Zoom! This month, our program touches on themes of Amor (love), Amistad (friendship), Comunidad (community), Black History and Carnaval (via Brazil). That’s a lot, I know, but we’re ambitious that way! We love to celebrate life and all of our communities!
Marina Soul Club Mix 017 is up now on Mixcloud! I originally curated the tracklist for inclusion on Yacht Rock Miami‘s “Smooth Gravy” Thanksgiving Day broadcast. Given the 2pm PST/5pm EST time slot, the mix’s uptempo, high energy kickoff seemed right on time to fight off the onset of our listeners’ food comas and/or to rev up their appetites for second helpings.
The vibes move from disco to ‘yacht soul’ to soft rock to jazzy pop, closing out with a couple of lovely reggae numbers. The tune Night Moves, written and originally recorded by Michael Franks and appearing on MSC Mix 010 , shows up once again, this time in a lively bossa jazz style by chanteuse, Dee Dee Bridgewater. Check out the full tracklist below. Much love and gratitude to Captain Juan Luv and his mates at Yacht Rock Miami for inviting Marina Soul Club LA to his radio platform.
