Puerto Rico is still recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane María, which hit the island back in September. Only about 80 percent of the island’s power has been restored (making it the longest blackout in U.S. history), and clean water and basic goods are still scarce. But in this darkness, there has been some much-needed light, thanks to the 35,000 people who have contributed with more than $4.5 million to María Fund, an initiative benefiting over 33 grassroots groups in Puerto Rico. The fund, which has been supported by the likes of Ricky Martin, Spike Lee, and Princess Nokia, is set to help on-the-ground campaigns dedicated to immediate relief and long-term efforts to build an equitable Puerto Rico.
On January 25, Remezcla is partnering with The Martinez Brothers and Louie Vega for Pa’ Puerto Rico, a night of support and celebration to help raise funds for relief efforts. Pa’ Puerto Rico will take place at the Remezcla headquarters, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Maria Fund. DJ duo and Ibiza’s Circo Loco residents The Martinez Brothers are headlining the evening, and will be joined by Grammy-Winner Louie Vega, who just received his sixth nomination for his Loleatta Holloway remix of “Can’t Let You Go.” Also behind the decks will be DJ Lady S and DJ Mode. Puerto Rican leaders including Congresswoman Nydia Velasquez will also be joining the festivities.
Check out all the information on the flyer below, and buy tickets here. The donation will go towards an open bar curated by The Shakedown.
