On Saturday, February 12, more than 300 fans attended the 3rd Annual MojaMoja Pre-Grammy Brunch and Concert at the AT&T Center downtown Los Angeles. Performances included Grammy nominees Chilean Rapper Ana Tijoux, Bilal and Eric Roberson. Other artists featured at the event were DJ Flying Lotus and Superhumanoids.
Dirt LA collaborated with Moja Moja and Oxfam as the official apparel partner for the event. Raffling two of our signature pieces from the Liquid Collection, 100% of the proceeds were given to Oxfam America in supporting their efforts in Haiti.
The concert headlined with Grammy Artist Mavis Staples, known for her classic hit “I’ll Take You There,” was honored with the inaugural MojaMoja Vanguard Award. This award was presented by world renowned DJ and co-creator of theMojaMoja.com Garth Trinidad, who for the event was wearing the Dirt LA Liquid Beach Tie and Oxfam America’s Bob Ferguson, senior music advisor. She performed her 2011 Grammy-winning song “You Are Not Alone.”
With one of the most anticipated events of the music industry almost here.. we are proud to announce our collaboration with Moja Moja and Oxfam America for the 3rd Annual Pre-Grammy Brunch this Saturday.
