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 Les Difficiles from Haiti.
Please excuse our recent absence from this space. We’ve been doing some remodeling and maintenance, but we’re back now! We’re still very excited to continue sharing more music and culture. In fact, last week we got together and recorded our very first Pelangacast live from our LP clubhouse! The concept is not to have the typical radio “programmed show,” but instead to invite you into our cozy wall-to-wall collection of culture on vinyl as we share stories and discoveries from our musical addictions.
Below is our first episode with more to come soon. Have a listen, and let us know what you think.

Ce La Vie – Les Difficiles De Pétion-Ville
Ah Ah Oh No – La Protesta (ft. Joe Arroyo)
