Discos Rolas + Dublab = A Night of Cumbia Sonidera

⌚️2023-04-09 05:00:00 – 2023-04-09 09:30:00
🏢2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057, USA

A night of film and conversation followed by a cumbia sonidera dance party with Turbo Sonidero and friends, brought to us by Sonidero City, Discos Rolas and Dublab! The night begins with a screening of Joyce Garcia's *Yo No Soy Guapo*.


To celebrate the release of Turbo Sonidero’s *Lowrider Kumbias Rebajadas* on cassette tape, Discos Rolas and Dublab present a night of cumbia sonidera. The evening will feature a screening and conversation between director Joyce García, photographer Mirjam Wirz, and archivist Jorge Balleza moderated by Alexandra Lippman. A cumbia sonidera dance party will follow with Turbo Sonidero, Sonido Sabotaje, Ganas and Xandão.

*Yo No Soy Guapo* (2018) directed by Joyce García is a heartfelt and authentic portrait of Tepito, one of Mexico City’s proudest barrios and the lengths to which they will go to defend their traditions. García focuses on *cumbia sonidera* (sound system *cumbia*), a record-based dance music scene performed in the street on sound systems. As the city begins to gentrify, prohibitions on street dances by local government threaten to shut down parties and public gatherings. *Yo No Soy Guapo* won first place in the Guanajuato’s International Film Festival.


Turbo Sonidero is a music producer and record collector from San Jose, CA who blends Cumbia Sonidera (sound system) with Rap. He is a co-founder of Grupo Jejeje and the founder of Kumbia Net/Kumbia Obscura, a collective that promotes new and up-and-coming cumbia producers from Mexico and beyond.
