La La Lista is an online arts and culture magazine devoted primarily to the coverage of local music in Buenos Aires, with a soft spot for good food and great art. It is a guiding principle of the publication to avoid the boys’ club mentality that pervades the world of arts and culture journalism; we want to highlight projects by female and non-binary creators as much as possible.

Every article, weekly agenda, and playlist is (for the time being) a labor of love, provided by a loose collection of yanquis, colombianxs, argentinxs, and others for whom Buenos Aires is home.
