ILLEGAL intern Radio #66 Oct. 5, 2016

Last week La Cita celebrated 10 years in DTLA with a line up that included Yanga, Quitapenas & La Chamba. If you were out there you know a good time was had by all not to mention all the sweaty bodies moving to the tropical cubia and afro rhythm beats. I also had a chance to enjoy the music I would hear my parents play when my tios and tias would come over and get their drink on. Sure they played Frank Sinatra, Big Bands, and other cocktail sounds of the 60s & 70s, they’d also play Trios, Rancheras & Boleros. The later being what was featured at Plaza de Cultura y Artes with musical guests La Victoria and La Marisol y Los Hermanos Carlos. La Marisol and some of the members playing today are also part of the Grammy nominated La Santa Cecilia.
