Staying creative in these challenging times, my neighbor and owner of @hifikitchen has found a way to bring people together by hosting a cultural #drivein broadcast over #fm #wavelenghts serving tasty Filipino food to your car. Live music, DJ’s, poets and a charismatic MC. I love it, I get to sit on the steps and chill for a change. Keep it going Justin!

This Labor Day will be epic. Welcome. back Samba Society!

Samba Society is back after a long hiatus to celebrate 10 years with the return of our epic Labor Day backyard samba party at Tropico de Nopal Gallery Art-Space!!! Our traditional "roda de samba" is the only event of its kind in L.A. that features a mix of deep roots samba, batuque, partido alto, and samba de terreiro in the most intimate setting of the Trópico backyard. Performing in our preferred circular format, we blur the lines between the audience and musicians. Our event is THE L.A. staple of old-school, roots samba and Trópico de Nopal is the only venue in Southern California where Samba Society performs in this format that is the hallmark of the samba tradition.

Samba Society is an eclectic collective of Brazilian, American, and international musicians that share a deep connection to Brazilian music. The group's history is intrinsically tied to Trópico de Nopal and owner Reyes Rodríguez, who has been a supporter and host since we started. After a long absence from our home base we open the circle once again to our extended family of musicians, artists, dancers, sing-alongers, and cool cats of every stripe.
REYES spinning between sets!
food . caipirinhas . cold beer . vinho
$15 - please support live music, local musicians and the arts!

ABOUT SAMBA SOCIETY
Samba Society is deeply influenced by "roots" music of classic vinyl recordings of the 1970s. Under the artistic direction of Brazilian American Beto González, Samba Society is a collective of musicians from diverse backgrounds that is truly reflective of the multi-cultural landscape of Los Angeles. Since forming in 2009, the group has staked its claim as LA’s premier Brazilian collective of multi-instrumentalists with broad knowledge of the musical panorama and history of Brazil.

Getty Research Institute

We're excited to announce applications are open for Scholar Year 2019/20 to explore the themes of "Art and Ecology" and "The Classical World in Content: Thrace." The former, which will be studied by scholars at the Getty Research Institute, is particularly topical in light of current ecological and environmental concerns as scholars explore artistic practice and our understanding of nature and our relationship to it. For scholars at the Villa, next year's theme will center on the ancient culture of Thrace with particular emphasis on their ties to Greece.

The deadline to apply is October 1: http://bit.ly/QQk9VQ
