Musicians from all over Southern California will perform a concert this Sunday to benefit people affected by the disasters in Puerto Rico and Mexico. LAMúsicaHelps is bringing together local Latin bands including Cambalache, Rumbanteke and Samba Society.

"We have a lot of friends whose places were completely collapsed," says co-organizer and Take Two music contributor Betto Arcos. "We felt that we had something to do about it."

"Here's how we heal," adds Cesar Castro from Cambalanche. "It's good to heal the soul with music."

Tickets are $20 and available at this site. #LAMúsicaHelps is Sunday, October 8th from 12 p.m. - 9 p.m. at LA Plaza De Cultura Y Artes, 501 North Main Street, Los Angeles.
