La Junta is back and we are super excited to share some great news with you.
To kick off our Summer season we have invited Oakland's
La Misa Negra who will be performing live cumbia, porro, and gaita !!!
La Misa Negra (Black Mass or Black Ritual) is an 8-piece band from Oakland, California that plays a unique blend of 1950's and 60's style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music. The symbolism behind their name pays tribute to the genre’s African roots and Caribbean heritage, and celebrates the spirit and ritual of dance. Powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a fierce rhythm section, and a vintage Colombian sound, La Misa Negra delivers an electrifying performance that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy. Since their live debut in the fall of 2011, they have been exorcising bodies on the dance floor and proving, through dance and sweat, that La Misa Negra is not just a band, but a PARTY!

Another bit of exciting news, we have a new home in the city of Alhambra, Fronteras Cantina!! Get ready to dance and mingle in their shaded patio, while enjoying drinks and food from the special Happy Hour menu.
LA JUNTA hosts and resident deejays Glenn Red , Yuki Shimotakahara and David Cardena-degruvme will be on hand warming up the space along with our gorgeous LA sunshine.
We encourage you to bring a small percussion instrument and your dancing shoes.
