The Jet Set

, Wednesdays, 9 p.m.
The Jet Set
The son of a Guatemalan mother and Salvadorian mother, Erick Santero grew up in Panama and Costa Rica, studied in Puerto Rico and Cuba, and poached a lot of his musical knowledge from Latin scenes in New York. So it's no overreach for Santero to say he gets around Latin America, or that he tends to eschew borders. His fan base is centered in the Bay Area, for sure, but it's also spread throughout the Latino diaspora, as is his palette. As a DJ, he's known for mixing contemporary hip-hop with vocal samples filched from Cuban singer Celia Cruz, bachata rhythms that originated in the Dominican Republic, and cumbia styles of the Caribbean. His weekly world music party, called The Jet Set, features grooves from throughout the Americas, as well as parts of Asia and Africa, with a rotating lineup of guest DJs. Every Wednesday at Luka's Taproom (2221 Broadway, Oakand). 8 p.m., free. free
