Thursday, May 30th – Salt Cathedral & Millionyoung Live @ 1306 Miami
Colombian tropi-pop duo Salt Cathedral will be heading up 1306 tonight, bringing their pop-meets-dancehall tunes to Miami party goers. This will be the band’s first time back to our city, since performing at HOC in 2017.

Million Young will join them on the line-up, debuting a new live set. The event is presented by House of Creatives and the Music & Arts Fest.

Friday, May 31st – Jazz at MoCA ft Jean P Jam @ The Museum of Contemporary Art
Hosted by North Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Jean Almatas (AKA “Pokito”) will be playing a live set this Friday. The talented singer/ songwriter will be bringing his deeply rooted music, expanding what we know as world music. Self-taught, Pokito was born in Haiti where he began his musical exploration into konpa and racine styles. The artist would go on to tour with Richie Booker (Bob Marley’s brother) among many other notable acts. Inspired by many different facets of his musical experience, Pokito calls his music “Rootsy Juicy.” Putting his band (Jean P Jam) together in 2002 he began introducing his original world beat style called “Deep Roots” to the world. The event begins tomorrow at 8 pm and is free with an RSVP.
