Musical Community Day, May 2020


There wasn’t a Topanga Days Country Fair this year, but the canyon’s musicians came together  online to celebrate the spirit of the community. The response to the call for submissions was amazing. 

The Topanga New Times’ Musical Community Event on Memorial Day was DJ’ed by Brian Chapman, and live-streamed on Vimeo and Facebook for more than four hours. The featured Topanga musicians included Colin Hay, Cecilia Noel, Miguel Perez; Deb Ryder; The Blue Dolphins; Melanie Kareem; The Lost Tribe; The Chants; Friends Of; Gabbi Beauvais;  Yosmel Montejo; Kelp Dwellers, The Nations, Sam Small, Stacie Burrows, and many more. (You can see a more complete (we hope) list of participants along with their contact information here.)

A total of 30 artists contributed nearly 80 videos. The live-streamed music event inspired canyon dance parties and became the soundtrack for the day in homes around Topanga and all over the country, as almost 3000 people tuned in.

Below are all of the participants and their contact information or social media handles, for those who submitted musical material for our Musical Community Day!
