La Choloteca: Ley de Latinx
Thursday November 24, 2016 07:00 PM EST
From the venue:Thereâ€™s plenty to decry about New Atlanta: mixed-use malaise and mayo-flavored suburbanism. Then thereâ€™s La Choloteca. The dance party emerged this year to become something of a cultural oasis by making visible space on the dance floor for Atlantaâ€™s Latinx community. In a city obsessed with the historical narrative of its black-and-white binary, itâ€™s a necessary noise of inclusion. And the soundtrack reverberates with salsa, merengue, reggaeton, rock, and pop en espanol. For the last party of the year, themed Ley de Latinx, the movement ministry will be consist of DJ Onidotcom, DJ Florista, DJ Anonima, and DJ Santiago Paramo. If this is a taste of whatâ€™s next for Atlanta, there may be hope for this damned town yet.
