Viva les Difficiles!

The past 2 months, (December and January), have been filled with family, feasts, and re-centering ourselves for the new year.

And for this new year, we here at La Pelanga are all very excited as we plan to stay busy with new live events, new podcasts, new mixes, new pelanga onesies for the babies and of course lots of new music here on the blog.

Where to start though?

I propose we all set our volume control to 11 and ROCK THE FUCK OUT with how to buy antabuse Les Difficiles from Haiti.
