On Friday, July 31, MALABOMBA! teams up with Metro Art to bring you an international
dance party the likes of which you have never experienced before! On this incredible
special occasion we are throwing the wildest pan-global dance party this side of anywhere
inside the gorgeous and storied halls of historic Union Station!

EXTRA! EXTRA! This party is FREE, all ages, starts at 8pm sharp, and runs till 10:30 so be certain to arrive early!

To headline this madness we are privileged to present you – for the first time in L.A. - the
live debut of Gonzo Lautari, a new and electrifying band bringing you the sounds of the
old world with loads of new twists. Featuring members of SF’s La Peche, San Diego's
Therianthrope and Los Angeles’ notorious Fishtank Ensemble, Gonzo Lautari’s cast of
characters employ a solid grounding in Eastern European folk dance music with jazz
improvisation, funky grooves and a sharp, classical harmonic sensibility that is at once
fresh and strangely familiar. The music these fellas drop is fast and furious, with an
intensity and virtuosity that will have you stomping the parquet floors of this iconic
landmark all night long.

As always and ever, The MALABOMBA! DJ Crew will be on the decks dropping their signature
mix of banging Balkan brass, bellydance beats, psychedelic cumbia, Romany remixes, and a
wild variety of other underground sounds from around the world.

This event is brought to you by Metro Art Presents, which showcases an exciting array of
free arts and cultural programs at historic Union Station.
This free, all ages event will take place inside Union Station’s historic Fred Harvey Room.
