The Spanish Lute Orchestra "Grandio" is something of a misnomer, and an unfamiliar one at that. But with the promise of singers and dancers as well, it sufficed to sell out Ambassador Auditorium on Sunday afternoon. "Grandio" simply refers to the orchestra's founder, Roberto Grandio Rojo. The lutes, however, proved to be bandurrias, and one guitar. Double-strung and teardrop shaped like lutes, bandurrias are flat-backed like guitars and played with a plectrum like mandolins.

Sixteen people, including two prominent Latinos, filed papers by Friday's deadline for the June 2 primary in the 30th Congressional District to succeed Democratic Rep. Edward R. Roybal, who is retiring after 30 years in the House. Nine Democrats filed for the seat in the heavily Democratic district, which encompasses mostly inner-city neighborhoods north and west of downtown Los Angeles. Latinos make up 61% of the district's residents but only 34% of its registered voters.

Never have so many candidates, with so few votes, gotten so much attention. Joe Chavez, Louis Chitty III, Khalil Khalil, Jim Mihalka and Gonzalo Molina brought up the rear in last month's primary election for the 1st District seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Together, they received 2,571 votes, little more than 3% of the ballots cast, and finished well behind Los Angeles City Councilwoman Gloria Molina and state Sen.
