Lead by master drummer Maceo Hernandez, East LA Taiko marries Afro-Cuban and Caribbean rhythms with driving taiko beats — a fiery eclectic blend of world rhythm that travels the globe and takes you right into the heart of Los Angeles. ELAT performs at the Annex with Lysa Flores. Newsweek Magazine named Flores one of "20 young Latinos to watch in the new millennium." A first generation Mexican-American, Flores has been a pioneer in the "EastLos" alternative music scene since her teens making music that now defines an urban L.A. style.
