El Kilombo: Intergalactic Radio

A new community radio show starts this Wednesday, 7:30-8 pm: Radio Kilombo: Voces Intergalacticas on WXDU-Durham, 88.7 FM, with live web stream at www.wxdu.org.

The half-hour talk show covers local, national and global news and issues relevant to the Latino community in Durham and the Triangle.

Radio Kilombo debuts this week following my music program, Azucar y Candela with Santa Salsera, featuring salsa, timba, Latin jazz & Afro-Cuban roots, at its new Wednesday time of 5:30-7:30 pm.

El Kilombo also hosts a monthly benefit dance at Club 9, on Ninth Street in Durham, on the third Friday of every month. The next party will be Friday, September 19th, with a free salsa lesson when doors open at 10pm. Deejay will spin salsa, merengue, bachata and reggaeton; cover is $10 at the door, or $5 with RSVP. To receive the door discount, just email clubcimarron@gmail.com and you will be placed on their guest list. All proceeds of the Club Cimarron Dance Party benefit the non-profit El Kilombo Social Center at 324-B Geer Street in Durham. More info: (919) 688-8768 or www.elkilombo.org
