This Saturday night, we’re doing it again at La Peña, folks. I’ll be back, spinning for the first time in what feels like forever, so I’m very excited about that. In case you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to, it’s this: Radio Ambulante. My wife, Carolina Guerrero, and I, along with our two partners, Annie Correal and Martina Castro, have spent the better part of a year working on getting this narrative radio project off the ground: the idea is to tell Latin American stories in sound. We’ve just launched the website, with an audio sampler, featuring stories from Peru, Argentina, New York, Barcelona, Chile, and places in between. We have pieces in the works from Mexico, Cuba, Honduras, Los Angeles, and Colombia. It’s been a real adventure, and this Saturday, our two projects team up: all proceeds from the party will go to help fund the next stage of the radio project. We’ve got a Kickstarter campaign going, so if you like what you hear, please consider making a donation. If you like to dance, come out on Saturday to La Peña, and support us that way.
Below is a video explaining more about the project, how it came about.
Abrazos + see you all at La Pelanga!
