This year’s Lummis Day Festival (June 2,3 & 4) will present a musical mosaic of genres, styles and cultural traditions on its three music stages at Sycamore Grove Park (Sunday, June 4, noon-7pm) and at the ”Cafe Stage” event on Avenue 50 at York Boulevard (Saturday, June 3, 5pm-9pm)
In all, 17 music artists will be presented at this year’s festival. The common denominator that each of them shares is their residence in Northeast Los Angeles’ neighborhoods.
Some of the musical styles represented at this year’s festival are West African fusion, Latin-infused “tropical surf,” Brazilian forró, African American gospel, indie folk, jazz-infused r&b and Veracruz son jarocho.
There’s alternative country, ukulele pop, celtic rock, Chicano rock and straight-ahead loud rock n’ roll.
Over 100 artists applied to perform at this year’s festival, and according to event founder Elliot Sekuler, the organizers selected music that “represents the broad diversity of the community and the level of creativity that has made Northeast L.A. a world-renowned hub of musical invention and creativity.”
