The East L.A. music scene of the 1960s combined a variety of music styles, including R&B, rock, soul, salsa, funk, and even traditional Mexican rhythms, to develop a unique sound that was enjoyed throughout Los Angeles and beyond. The scene allowed Mexican-American music groups to achieve local and national recognition. This map spotlights venues where these groups performed and highlights the local community centers, ballrooms, and parks that allowed this youth movement to flourish. This map offers highlights but is not comprehensive. If you have comments or suggestions, please e-mail the L.A. Conservancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
