Ricardo Lemvo and Makina Loca

  • January 19, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sounds of L.A. returns with local favorites Ricardo Lemvo and Makina Loca, who never fail to delight with their signature mix of Afro-Cuban rhythms, Angolan semba, and Congolese soukous. Shake off the winter blues at this high-octane concert featuring new music from their latest release.

A tastemaker and provocateur, Robert Mapplethorpe was one of the great photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. His highly stylized explorations of gender, race, and sexuality became hallmarks of the period and exerted a powerful influence on his contemporaries.
