Last night DJ Florista, Anónima and myself were surrounded by beautiful energy emanating from a diverse and ecstatic crowd which danced all night long to a wide variety of Latin music. If you missed it, make sure follow La Choloteca for a next edition of this party, which celebrates the LatinX community in Atlanta, GA.
Here is what Monica Campana said about this joyful night:
"Words cannot express how incredibly magical last night was. Never ever, ever in my wildest dreams would I have expected to see so many LatinX people together in Little Five Points at Star Bar dancing their life away all night to Celia, Selena, Osca D'Leon, J Balvin, Tego, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, etc.
It was an amazing feeling to dance the way we were taught when kids, it was amazing to sing to old salsa, to speak in Spanglish, and to not feel any weirdness doing it. It was freeing, healing and the most fun I have had in forever.
I could not stop smiling last night. I could compare this to the first Living Walls opening, the time I met Anthony Bourdain or even the last time I fell in love.
Last night the LatinX community in Atlanta took space and had our voices heard. Last night was everything and we will make sure it happens again!"
Thank you Choloteca team. This was truly special and I am grateful for being a part of it!
