Degruvme & Glenn Red at CAFAM - JAN 30 2016
On Saturday January 30th, the La Junta Sound System were invited to play records out in the courtyard of the Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) on Los Angeles' Museum Row/Miracle Mile/Wilshire District. Though Yukicito was missing in action due to his extensive preparations in advance of his upcoming samba performances in Brazil, I was with the 'mano DEGRUVME from 11am-5pm mixing everything from soul jazz to future soul, cumbia to samba, disco to nu-disco, highlife to afrobeat, Stevie to Marvin to Michael, and more! We received some great feedback and--dare I say!--compliments from the CAFAM staff as well as museumgoers. We also were asked for quite a few La Junta business cards, while Degruvme even sent some lucky guests on their ways with a free copy of his brand new ECHOES OF A DREAM EP. Below are just a few shots I snapped as we were setting up shop for the day. Much love to CAFAM's SASHA ALI (aka MISS MODULAR RADIO) for the invitation!
