En Memoria is a Dia de Los Muertos event that brings together both visual artist and lowrider culture to the Fairplex grounds to celebrate through art, music and great food in partnership with local restaurant Dia de Los Puercos. It is the second event in a series of programs launched under Mi POCO LA which aims to combine the traditions of altar making with the contemporary artistic representation of lowrider car culture.
Saturday, November 4
1:00PM - 8:00PM
Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed-genre and musical borders, playing with bands such as Mexican icons Caifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli.
The Delirians are the heavy hitters of Californias ever growing traditional ska and reggae scene. Based out of East Los Angeles, founders Angel Salgado(vox,guitar) and Tony "teclado" Medina(organ,vox) strive to keep that vintage reggae sound alive. With tracks like "Walkie Talkie" and "Leave This Town" you'll be sure to hear reflections of that vintage 60's era sound, adding their own flavour to create a genuinely unique sound.
