SABOR Dance Party – Fundraiser for Dj Jose Ruiz!

February 3, 2017 @ 9:00 pm

sabor-1Dear LP Community,

Our friend DJ Jose Ruiz will not be able to host his monthly SABOR dance party in February do to a recent diagnosis of throat cancer he will be spending time with his mother and sisters in Los Angeles before he starts treatment. The oncologists have given him a positive prognosis. But due to its advanced stage he will need a very aggressive treatment plan that will leave him unable to work for 4 months. Because Disability covers only 50% of his income, his daughter has started a Crowdfunding campaign to help him cover his costs: https://www.youcaring.com/joseruiz-744535

We will be making the Feb. 3 SABOR party into a BENEFIT for DJ Jose Ruiz! All proceeds will go toward Jose Ruiz’s Crowdfunding campaign! DJ Sandina La Postiva (Sandina Robbins) will be DJ-ing from 9pm-midnight! Come dance for a great cause – to give back to someone who has give us so much, José A. Ruíz!

DJ Jose Ruiz hosts SABOR dance party at La Peña the first Friday of every month! Get ready to dance to an eclectic mix of genres from Latin America and around the globe: Salsa, Cumbia, Merengue, and other world dance music!

DJ José Ruíz, aka MundoMuzik, is a DJ, radio host, promoter, and collector of world music, vinyl, art and all cultural and music ephemera. Jose’s taste in music is very eclectic, unafraid to mix traditional, experimental or folkloric elements in his sets. His confidence and impeccable taste in music is deeply rooted in the time and research he dedicates to learn about the genres he plays. His respect for the origin and tradition of music he loves can be heard in depth as a radio host and felt when he fills the dance floor.

sabor-5-jose-ruizJose has been able to stay connected with the pulse of his community, his contagious energy has earned him new followers, he sees music as a way to bring together our diverse backgrounds or as he puts it “to explore and celebrate the diversity of human expression in an increasingly inter-connected world or connecting the dots”.
