Julieta Álvarez Leal – Photography Reception – #foundheartseries

Adan Jodorosky at Beat Kitchen
May I suggest a musical dose of warm, lush and dreamy tropi-folk sounds? Does his unique upbringing add a dose of surrealism to the whole thing? Go find out in person. He was at Ruido Fest 2017 and he’s got a new album, Esencia Solar. LA Times referred to his music as bedroom folk. Heh.
