Cordero are making their way once more to the West Coast for tour dates in support of their latest album “De Dónde Eres,” released a year ago to critical acclaim. The band will be making a local stop this Saturday, August 29 at the Levitt Pavilion Memorial Park in Pasadena, an outside venue already conducive to becoming a street party, but before that, singer/guitarist Ani Cordero made time to speak with LatinoLA about her music….

Habla Blah Blah – English bilingualism with children via silly music and rockin’ classes, is proud to present a free outdoor concert starring the singers, dancers, and instructors of habla blah blah and featuring Jamey Hood, actress, singer, and children’s entertainer (formerly of the Hollywood Bowl).
habla blah blah introduces children to the sounds and words of Spanish through their self-titled music CD’s and “mommy & me” style classes. The goal is to provide children and their caregivers with Spanish phrases that are readily applicable to their everyday life, i.e. “I’m hungry/Tengo Hambre” and “I want to play!/Quiero jugar!” Music CD’s are recommended as class materials or can be enjoyed separately to promote Spanish-English bilingualism in the home. While the self-titled CD’s enjoy international distribution, classes in the Los Angeles area are growing steadily with nine different locations hosting this Fall 2009.
FREE Concert this Wednesday at 7PM

On Sunday The Gathering play the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena. Woodwind maestro Jesse Sharps tethers this bunch together, keeping aflame Horace Tapscott’s Arkestra concept (been a half-century now!) with one of this town’s most exciting younger tenors, Kamasi Washington — and with a mess of other great players, some masked dancers and African drumming. We’ve raved plenty about Washington lately, getting crowds out of their seats, hollering before his solo is near halfway done (memories of Paul Gonsalves at Newport). Sharps has matched him with vocalist Dwight Trible; the acoustics are such at the Levitt that his tremendous voice will carry clear through Old Town, wafting over the busy traffic. Eerie.
The Gathering at the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena this Sunday at 7PM. FREE ADMISSION.
