73] – Before the death of George Floyd, Friends of Latin America had organized a happy hour to help raise funds for the musical ensemble Wayta. However, given the current sadness and anger at this violence perpetrated against a member of the Black community, we are reframing this fundraiser to help fund local BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color) organizations that are working directly to help protesters that have been injured and/or arrested. On Fri., June 5 at 6 PM, enjoy a concert of Andean music with Gustavo Vargas: Charango, guitarra, sampoñas, sankas, bombito; and Cesar Mazat: Guitarra, sampoñas, sankas, quena, quenacho.
