Anti-War Peace Rally in Hollywood music by BUYEPONGO ft Eduardo Arenas (Chicano Batman)

Posted in Chicano Batman BARDO, Critics News, L.A. events, photography, The crew, videos on March 22, 2010 by Listen Recovery

It was a somewhat “sunny day” in Hollyweird, the streets from Orange to Highland were blocked off due to the PEACE RALLY and ANTI WAR. KPFK was present at the gathering, along with some veterans who wanted to share some of their pain and dis-illusion for our government… Some tears dropped during the speech as well as first in the air.  Buyepongo performed right after the 1st speeches from the organization putting the event PSLWEB.org Bardo Martinez Quintero, Edgar Modesto, Carlos Diaz, Kevin Linares and Rich Spirit (cowbell covering for Wil Carrillo for the 1st song) and also Eduardo Arenas (from Chicano Batman covering for Randy Modesto who worked that day). Thanks to Eduardo Arenas, “You killed it hermano!”.  The time was 2:35pm and Buyepongo’s 2nd set was to start after the last speeches by the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars Veterans. It was very intense speeches.

The Band as always delivered their sound and energy with all the people who stayed to enjoy the solidarity… From youth to grandparents to a waiving Venezuelan flag to Shrek and Goofy dancing in the middle of Hollywood Blvd right across from the Chinese Theater.  It was a weird but fun location for such a rally and performance.  The Band enjoyed them self as the crowd dance to their beat.  Here are the flix. Enjoy as well…

Use your forefeet for something other than walking by cumbianin’ it out to LA’s own Buyepongo. The band will be mixing this and that — this being the aforementioned cumbia, and that being vallenato — this Friday at TaTou. Plus, DJs Fresko, Rich Spirit and Renz will be dropping dusty salsa, cumbia villera, dirty vallenato and Brazilian soul. Los Angeles’ Buyepongo has Bardo on the accordion and the lead vocals, Randy on the bass, and Carlos, Roberto, Will, Mextly and Kevin on percussion and vocals. (Yeah, these guys want you to be on a first-name basis with them…DEAL WITH IT.) They can trace their origins back to Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador; hence the choice in music. And according to the band, “moving crowds and shaking masses and excelerate souls is what Buyepongo does, beating drums soaking dry dirt with dripping sweat, to uplift and to ground everyone to Earth’s original pulse.”

Muevelo! a night with BUYEPONGO & Dj Mando Fever.
