This summer, Lulacruza has been on an 18-city tour through the United States, travelling throughout the Pacific Northwest and West Coast. On August 22nd, they will be closing out the tour in Los Angeles at the beautiful Teragram Ballroom with The Human Experience, Sorne and The Dirty Diamond.

This is a rare opportunity to catch Lulacruza while they are in the United States. Hailing from Colombia and Argentina, their raw performances have garnered a reputation for transporting audiences with their intimate, meditative qualities. Heavily informed by South American ritual and folklore, Lulacruza masterfully tread the line between electronic and acoustic, ancient and avant-garde. The band plays South American indigenous instruments like the Colombian cuatro, charango and bombo legüero and utilize electronic processing and sequencing, complemented by songbird Alejandra’s powerful, stirring vocals.

CivLAvia: Heart Of LA

September 18, 2013 — Leave a comment

CicLAvia: Heart of LA returns to the streets that started it all, explore downtown Los Angeles on bike, foot, stroller, and many more creative means of locomotion. The Heart of LA route follows in the footsteps of their first five events and helps Angelenos rediscover the origins of the City of Angels. Whether you’ve ridden these streets before or are new to CicLAvia, the Heart of LA route promises something new to discover.

CicLAvia makes the streets safe for people to walk, skate, play, and ride a bike. There are activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia route.

Our free bike repair is only for minor repairs: tire pumping, popped chains, etc. Please do not come to CicLAvia expecting to get a full service repair.

All pedestrians are welcome at CicLAvia. You may either walk in the streets to the right of the bicyclists or on the sidewalks. If you’re in the street, stay to the right and move to the sidewalk if you feel that there are too many bicycles in the street at any given time.

Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States, connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space in the city.

In Los Angeles we need CicLAvia more than ever. Our streets are congested with traffic, our air is polluted with toxic fumes, our children suffer from obesity and other health conditions caused by the scarcity of public space and safe, healthy transportation options. CicLAvia creates a temporary park for free, simply by removing cars from city streets. It creates a network of connections between our neighborhoods and businesses and parks with corridors filled with fun.
