Hey, Happy May!
If all goes well, our SALA events will hopefully begin to take place in real life, live and direct! For now, though, we still gotta play it safe, and so our virtual event returns on Zoom this coming Saturday, May 8th at 8:30pm.
It’s another stellar lineup of activists, visual artists, poets, thespians, musicians, and deejays coming together–as we have during much of the pandemic–to elevate your spirits while you socialize from home.
This month, our featured artists celebrate Mothers’ Day, International Workers’ Day, and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so invite those mamas out there to Zoom in!
- JOLLENE LEVID (AF3IRM), Opening Remarks
- AUDREY CHAN, Visual Art
- IRIS DE ANDA, Poetry
- SESSHU FOSTER & ARTURO ROMO, Fiction
- PATTY CACHAPERO, Solo Performance
- NANCY SANCHEZ, Live Musical Performance
- GLENN RED & REYES, Resident Deejays
Plus, be sure to move that furniture and stick around for the dance party!
As always, it’s a FREE event…just visit our Facebook event page to grab the Zoom meeting link. Virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm; full program beins at 8:30pm. See you on Saturday night in your salas!

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!
