Since 2008, we’ve been bringing our community together around a crazy, positive dance floor with the freshest sounds from Kinshasa and Cartagena, Port au Prince and Nueva York, Oakland and Abidjan. We mix the old with the new, the city and the village, bombardinos and autotune.
La Pelanga was born in Cali, Colombia during the Festival Petronio Alvarez de Musica del Pacifico. Your pelanguero family has collective roots in California, Colombia, Indonesia, Perú, China, México, the Phillipines, Canada, and Korea. Now we call Oakland our home.
So you get the idea. Somos Pacífico, and this Saturday we celebrate.
Saturday August 25, 10pm-2am
La Peña, 3105 Shattuck, Berkeley (near Ashby BART)
