MUSIC/ EVENT: Johnny Colon & His Orchestra

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I regret not having woken up earlier that lazy summer day two years ago to see Victor Manuelle live at Summerstage in Central Park. I did manage to enjoy a few of the songs from the other side of the fence, along with the hundreds of fans that like me couldn't make it in. There's nothing like listening to the live trumpets and drums. 

Whether you know how to dance Salsa or not, if you're Latino, there's this innate rhythm within you. The music starts to play and for some reason or another that annoying old Latino people music your parents used to play sounds so damn appealing and you just want to move your hips and spin around.

I just copped my tickets for tomorrow's Johnny Colon event and I can't wait to whip out a sexy pair or heels and put them to the ultimate comfort test. 

Boogaloo!~

MUSIC: "Call Me" // Slum Village

I'm revisiting Slum Village this week, inspired by a hip hop head I'm sorta fond of :)

I'm on my fourth play of the song... Mmm, this one isn't going to get old anytime soon.

Enjoy.

EVENT: The Weeknd NYC Concerts Sold Out

Thursday, April 12, 2012


SOLD OUT.

And the tickets just went on sale today at 10AM. By the time I got around to checking my emails and then ticketmaster at around 12PM, the tickets were already all sold out. Bummer - I really wanted to see this guy live.

I'm not really one to take "no" for an answer and I'm trying to look into ways that I could probably go as part of work - backstage video, pictures, and a little article coverage never hurt an up and coming artist right?

btw on a random note, a recent friend of mine told me he looked up the word "Tenoli" and was quite shocked at how linked I am in the interwebs. I'm sure you get more hits on me using "Tenoli" in google search than you would with my actual name - exciting fact :)

Well I might not get to see The Weeknd but I am looking forward to checking out Li'Nard tonight at Club Groove. Check out his video below!

MUSIC: "El Todopoderoso" // Hector Lavoe

Friday, April 6, 2012

This week my co-worker and I have been non-stop listening to my Salsa Spotify playlist. It's such an ingrained part of the Latino life - whether Caribbean or South American Latino, there's a Salsa band that represents you - history, culture, and faith.

Today while listening to Alex Sensation's mega mezcla I heard this great Hector Lavoe Salsa that is most fitting for today, Good Friday.

Today we remember that in life there's a solution to every problem and that for the one problem there isn't a solution for (death), God will take care of it.

On Sunday is finally Easter, which only means two things - family and habichuelas con dulce! A comer se a dicho! Jaja.

Listen and Enjoy.
