Recently, we wrote about the big Cumbancha Irma Relief bash we’re throwing in New York, with proceeds going to The New Cuba, featuring the best Cuban DJ’s floating around the big apple right now. It’s going to be a booty shaking set of Afro Cuban Deep house and a proper Latin & Cuban mashup of sounds that will keep you hooked on the weekly event. This one will take place at Trophy Bar, 351 Broadway, Brooklyn 11211.
The door funds will personally be distributed by me (Jauretsi) from Oct 25-30th in Cuba, as I embark on a 3 city tour with CubaOne Foundation into the cities most deeply affected by Hurricane Irma. The relief work will be held within 3 provinces — Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus and Santa Clara. Signups are officially closed for that trip, but if you’d like to be involved in any other way, email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
The DJ crew includes: BJoyce (CUBA), Mey (CUBA), Derek Turcios (USA/CUBA), Edgaro Gonzalez (CUBA), Mickey Perez (USA/CUBA) with friends equally committed to “la causa” Marcus Aurelius Rosario (USA/PR), Sabine Blaizin (HAITI), Andrew Licata (EUA), and RioBamba (ECU). Expect some live percussion as well.
Can’t make it to the trip? Imagine yourself in Brooklyn that night, play this mix at home, and deposit money into our GoFundMe campaign instead. See how easy that was?
The fund is our backup plan collector for those who are missing the party, but want to help. Anything counts — $5, $25, $50. All the money is coming to Cuba into direct hands. Sending mad love to all our supporters who have contributed so far, in each and every way.
See you on the NY dancefloor, then Cuba. We shall document the progress report as it occurs.
