Record Surplus, one of the largest independent record stores on the West Coast, will be holding an in-store performance of Record Surplus: LIVE! featuring El Haru Kuroi on Friday, May 9th at 8:00 p.m. The performance will be a free event.
El Haru Kuroi, an East Los Angeles trio rooted in Mexican, South American, and African melodies and rhythms, has initiated a fierce style and sound. They perform throughout the Los Angeles area including First Fridays at the Natural History Museum, The Levitt Pavilion in MacArthur Park, The Eagle Rock Music Festival, and the Mayan Theater, opening up for Gogol Bordello. Their music was featured in the documentary, “Homeboy,” which explored homosexuality amongst the Mexican American cholo community in the 80’s and 90’s. El Haru Kuroi has one acoustic EP and two full-length albums including their newest release, “CantaGallo,” which features their latest sound: “East Los Angeles Nuevo Tropicalia.”
