José Luis Pardo, a.k.a. DJ Afro, plays guitar for the ubiquitous Los Amigos Invisibles, that New York-based crew of Venezuelans that have been making raunchy disco-Latin blends for more than a decade.
Pardo discovered his DJ persona, he says, once he became tired that before the Los Amigos’ gigs, the fans had to listen what club owners considered Latin music — the top 40 sounds of artists we won’t mention in this space.
Now DJ Afro has become associated with the up and coming National Geographic music label/website, Nat Geo Music, which this week had an event at music club Le Poisson Rouge.
