Carnaval Bash & Favela Funk Dance Party | Oakland
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Luka’s Taproom & Lounge | 2221 West Grand, Oakland, CA
For the celebration, Luka’s Taproom will be offering tropical drink specials.
Favela funk is a form of Brazilian electronic music primarily from Rio de Janeiro beats, blending elements of Miami Bass. Emerging from the slums and violence in Brazil, Favela Funk offers a positive outlet of expression.
And who better to host than Luka’s very own DJ Santero. “The son of a Guatemalan mother and Salvadorian mother, Erick Santero grew up in Panama and Costa Rica, studied in Puerto Rico and Cuba, and poached a lot of his musical knowledge from Latin scenes in New York. So it’s no overreach for Santero to say he gets around Latin America, or that he tends to eschew borders.” – Miz Chris from Oakland Local
DJ Santero is a resident DJ at Luka’s.
