¡WEPA! is an exclamation of happiness and approval among Latinos, like “Ohhh yeah!” It is normally yelled at a high volume. You must say it nasally or there is no effect. It is pronounced “weh-pah.”
Welcome to “El Barrio” …
A good friend, Joann Jimenez, once again has found a way to put the right mix of people, places and pride together for a night of cultural celebration in NYC. I’ve missed the last few installments of the above-mentioned party, so I can’t wait for tonight … live percussionists, sharp-skilled DJs and a powerful documentary on Latin music (that’s right, a little education goes a long way).
Just keeps reminding me that we are all in this together. WEH-PAH!
