DJs Andujar & Bongohead will bring their Rumba Psicodélica party back to the Quarters on Friday, Feb 20. These two tropi-heads will be spinning from their expansive vinyl direct to The Quarters Sound System. South American psych rock, messed-up cumbias, dark dubs, hard Afro rock, Cuban experimental, Trópicalia, salsa loca, spookaloo, tropical funk, Caribbean electro-derangement, Ethio-groove and other borderless haze. Join us 8pm-1am at The Quarters Friday 2/20. No cover. Come play some arcade games, drink some brews, eat some food and get your brain mangled. Brought to you by The Quarters and Peace & Rhythm.

Here's a peak at the talents of filmmaker Rodrigo Balseca Carmona, an amigo and co-conspirator of Peace & Rhythm. Inspired by Leon Gast's "Our Latin Thing", this documusic video tours us through the culturally rich neighborhood of Washington Heights, NYC by way of a boy running through the barrio/hood. We get a peek at the diversity of daily and nightly life of this Dominican diaspora fused with an equally dynamic instrumental which mixes the old sounds of Nuyorican boogaloo and salsa with classic hip hop beats. https://vimeo.com/119055693
