Are you enjoying this late summer heat wave! There’s still plenty to do out there under the hot sunshine of LA and this week is packed with cultural festivals! The LA Greek Festival, Little Ethiopia Cultural Street Festival, Fiestas Patrias, Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture and Latin American Festival are all happening this weekend! Personally though, we have a place in our heart for our Brazilian friends and Saturday is Brazilian Independence Day! Plenty of Brazilian festivities this weekend with Brazil Day in LA and San Diego and the opening of the LA Brazilian Film Festival!
Also some special occasions in our underground music & world culture community this week: my friends at the monthly TUMBE’ are celebrating their 3 years and Farah of FARAHSTOP is having a special photo exhibit SUENO VOL. 3, featuring pics of the Subsuelo crew. Wherever you are this week, dance and stay hydrated! I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Brazilian songs as I prepare to samba my bunda off this weekend!
