Name: Karla Hernandez
Title: Creative Coordinator

What’s a topic you’re currently intrigued by or passionate about?

Salsa and Bachata dancing

Why is that topic important to you?

I became interested in these dance styles while traveling around Colombia for a month last summer. Everyone that I encountered was a great dancer! It runs in their blood and the passion is infectious. So when I returned to LA, I started taking classes and it has been a big source of joy for me. I also love that it is one more way to stay connected to my Latin roots.

What’s a lesson you’ve learned from festivals?

I’ve learned to slow down and dedicate more time to appreciate the different types of beauty that surrounds us. Whether it’s stopping to look at a sunset, admiring a new Do LaB stage design or taking a moment to say hello to a neighbor or stranger, I’ve realized that everything in life is a form of art.

What artist would you leave on repeat the whole way home?

Kaytranada. I love a good dance party, and I was not disappointed when he played LIB 2017. Plus, he always enlists the freshest guest vocalists from the hip hop and r&b worlds.
