 On Thursday July 12th I will be DJ an opening set for a great double at The Conga Room in Downtown L.A. with Novalima & Jungle Fire.

Novalima At The Conga Room 7/12For the last several years, the collective of Peruvian, European and Asian musicians have released quality Afro-Latin electro music that is often imitated but never matched. Novalima takes what folkloric Afro-Peruvian artists such as Peru Negro and Susana Baca have done previously. Yet with each release, Novalima delves deeper in their Afro-Peruvian roots and still remains relevant in the clubs. With a live band that includes both sequenced beats and live masters of Afro-Peruvian percussion, this show should be a soulful evening of dance and song. Opening the show is L.A.’s own Jungle Fire, putting the funk back into Latin Funk. The members of Jungle Fire as individual musicians have played with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Joe Bataan, Breakestra, Ozomatli, Quantic, La Santa Cecilia, Celia Cruz, and Orgone, so you know these guys are funky! They will be celebrating the release of their new 7” on Colemine Records.

Transmission at Eastside Luve 7/11On Wednesday July 11th, Radio Sombra holds it monthly event, Transmission, at Eastside Luv to promote and to fundraise for the radio station. Recently, Radio Sombra added new radio shows by Maya Jupiter and Red Feminist Radio by the AF3IRM crew. With that in mind, our monthly fundraising event becomes even more important to accommodate our growing list of new programs. On this edition of Transmission, with have East Los finest, Thee Commons, performing live on the Eastside Luv stage. Personally, anytime a band put a “Thee” in front of their name, such as “Thee Midniters or “Thee Headcoats” I expect great things. The band does not disappoint. It a garage-y mess of Eastside rock & soul with some Psyche to boot. I will open the night with plenty of Worldly garage, soul, boogaloo and psyche. After the band, Heartbreak Radio’s DJ Phatrick and Art & Grooves’ Reyes will keep the dance party going till closing. Should be a great night of music.
