¡Descarga! is a monthly Afro-Latin music gathering for the people. This event is an alternative to the commercial salsa nights that have dominated the LA scene for years and pays homage to the Afro-Latin connection, through classic and urban world beats. When the soulful underground Latin music night began five years ago with DJs Dusk, Sloe Poke and Loslito, ¡Descarga! was about digging in the crates for the rarest salsa cuts and the funkiest Latin 60s and 70s sounds, in a club that would cater to LA's indie underground Latin, hip hop, funk and soul music scene. Today, the venue has changed, but the spirit of the night is still beating strong.
