Tongva Park Goes Latin Wednesday for its Third Season of Programs:

Tongva Park continues its third season of cultural programming on Wednesday, May 18th, at 7:30pm with category-defying L.A. bands Trio Ellas and El Haru Karoi.

The Latin Grammy-nominated Trio Ellas describe themselves as “three chicas exploring the music we can make with a violin, guitar, and a guitarron.”

 Traditional Mariachi and modern musical genres are brought together in a surprising and indescribably unique style that brought Trio Ellas to the attention of recording artists Ben Gibbard and Lady Gaga, with whom they have collaborated in the studio.

The supple, subtle musical elegance of El Haru Karoi represents a different side of the same genre-innovating work, combining elements of American Jazz, Mariachi, Bossa Nova andAfrican polyrhythms, filtered through the lens of the diverse L.A. landscape of Los Angeles. 

El Haru Karoi are acknowledged masters of a multilingual, propulsive music that is all their own.

Bring a picnic, friends and family and join us in Tongva Park for an evening of music and dancing under the stars with some of the best new Latin music the Los Angeles scene has to offer.
