Since the birth of Hollywood, composers and musicians from across Latin America have played key roles in shaping the music of film and television made in Los Angeles. Join Mexican Institute of Sound with special guests Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza) and a band led by L.A.'s own Alberto López (Jungle Fire, Rumbankete) for a special tribute to the Southern California sojourns of artists such as Juan García Esquivel, Lalo Schifrin, Maria Grever, and Johnny Richards, all of whom found their way into legendary Hollywood recording studios and onto screens large and small.

Sonorama is part of Musical Interventions, a performance series supported through major grants from the Getty Foundation.

Performance curated by cultural critic and historian Josh Kun, author of The Tide Was Always High: The Music of Latin America in Los Angeles.

This event is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.
