Since the birth of Hollywood, composers and musicians from across Latin America have played key roles in shaping the music of film and television made in Los Angeles. Join Mexican Institute of Sound with special guests Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza) and a band led by L.A.'s own Alberto López (Jungle Fire, Rumbankete) for a special tribute to the Southern California sojourns of artists such as Juan García Esquivel, Lalo Schifrin, Maria Grever, and Johnny Richards, all of whom found their way into legendary Hollywood recording studios and onto screens large and small. Organized by Josh Kun, music critic, MacArthur fellow, American Book Award winner, and USC professor, and presented as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. Click here for more information.
