While on a much needed holiday break where I was able to refresh and recharge after some rather difficult final months of 2023, I had the pleasure of hosting on January 2-3 my esteemed colleague and friend, DJ Hong from Philadelphia, USA.
Hong is an internationally renown record collector and DJ, well regarded both for his role as a co-admin of CoBeatParty (a salsa DJ cooperative that was active during the pandemic) and his weekly live stream on Facebook and YouTube: Dj Hong's Latin Record Party, which broadcasts every Sunday at 8am Eastern time.
I had the pleasure of setting up my sound room for him to broadcast a special show on his initiative: Guaguanco en Japon. I also participated by sharing the deck alongside him. Great times. Replay below.
