Beats & Bridges: From Little Tokyo to Boyle Hts. & Beyond
Mariachi Plaza: Musical Muertos Mundiales
7-10 pm / Mariachi Plaza & Mbar / Free
1Beat & the Boyle Heights Farmers Market present Musical Muertos Mundiales: A celebration of musical cultures from around the world and from three historic neighborhoods in downtown LA: Boyle Heights, the Arts District, and Little Tokyo.
Colliding sounds and stories from around the world on the stage of one of LA’s most beloved public performance spaces. OneBeat at Mariachi Square features the music of 25 OneBeat Fellows — young professional musicians from 17 countries who all share a desire to use their music to make the world a better place — in collaboration with young musicians from the historic Boyle Heights & Little Tokyo neighborhoods. This concert will explore the visible and invisible boundaries in the City of Angels and around the world, as well as ways that music can be used to bridge cultural gaps with the power of groovy beats and mesmerizing melodies. This will be followed by a Halloween dance after-party across the street at the M Bar. After party will feature local Cumbia band A Poco No, plus DJ sets from 1Beat fellows & local tropical DJ, Fresko.
