Friday 12/18 – Salsa Revolution Documentary + ¡WEPA! ft. LOU GORBEA & ANTONIO OCASIO – NYC

Congrats, Joann!  We love it when folks hybridize genres.  Very inspiring! –J. Medley

Hola Familia,

Back in October we sent you a reminder to check out

Latin Music USA on PBS, a documentary exploring the Fusions of Latin sounds with jazz, rock, country, rhythm and blues. It’s a fresh take on our musical history, reaching across time and across musical genres to embrace the exciting hybrid sounds created by Latinos; musical fusions that have deeply enriched popular music in the US for over more than five decades. It beautifully reveals how Latinos have reinvented their music in the United States and forged new identities within this country, while never losing sight of their own rich traditions.

Well, guess what?! We purchased a copy for the ¡WEPA! vault and we are going to be screening through the night. The the visuals are mesmerizing and the perfect backdrop for a night of Afro-House and Latin Soul with Lou Gorbea , Antonio Ocasio and, of course, Randy Montalvo on congas!

Paz y Luz,
The ¡WEPA! Family
Joann, Lou & Antonio
