Sonic Trace’s portable recording booth, La Burbuja (The Bubble) is built and ready to record your story at Guelaguetza Restaurant in L.A.’s Koreatown.

Come to 3014 West Olympic Boulevard Mondays-Thursdays, 12-6 p.m. thru December 6th to tell us your story inside La Burbuja.

Why did you leave? ¿Por qué te vas?
Why do you stay? ¿Por qué te quedas?
Why did you return? ¿Por qué regresas?
Are you or your parents from Mexico or Central America?  Do you have Angeleno relatives, friends, colleagues or neighbors that came from the region? How did they get here? What did they bring?  Do you know why they left? What made them stay? Or did they go back?

We want to know what it feels like to re-connect with long lost relatives from the Honduran highlands in the heart of Santa Monica. Or, how Los Angeles  has changed daily life in cities like San Salvador or Santa Maria de Tavhua, Mexico — places where entire communities have been transformed by “el otro lado” (the other side).

We will be at Guelaguetza Restaurant until Thurs., Dec. 6. Come for the stories, stay for the chapulines.
