La Pop is a place where culture and community come together!
A modern-day version of the 18th century literary salons where great minds and ideas came together to enlighten their societies. Inspired by Horace’s definition of poetry’s intent….aut delectare aut prodesse (either to please or to educate).
An essential aesthetic and refuge in life, La Pop features musical talent from home and abroad as part of our ongoing cultural exchange of ideas through sound.
