Saturday 21st June @ Hootananny Brixton
It’s festival season and we’re creating that unmistakably Globalista carefree vibe just ten minutes’ walk from Brixton tube! Yeah, we’re clever like that. This time it’s our pleasure to bring The London family a performance the mighty Dandaluz - a band who never fail to set the dancefloor on fire with their Rumbatastic brave new brand of fusion.
Also on the menu: all female Afro-Brazilian rhythms from Let Drum Beat. This is all topped off with a full-throttle visit from 12 piece hornimentalists the SOAS Brass Band. Frankly, it’s enough to blow your socks off.
¡Allí nos vemos!
Rumba / flamenco / Salsa / Pachanga /Bossa Nova
Fresh from the Latin Kitchen Energetic new fusion from Sevilla, Cartagena (Chile) and London these guys stir up the riotous melodies and rhythms of Rumba, Pachanga, Flamenco, Salsa and Bossa Nova. Dandaluz live is an intoxicating and colourful experience, they’re the kind of band who can keep you dancing til your feet hurt. Comfortable footware is advised.
LET DRUM BEAT
All female Afro-Brazilian beats with a modern twist
Let Drum Beat are female musicians who've gathered their percussion together, combining their Afro-Latin-Brazilian heritage and musical traditions to create original pieces led by a wide diversity of acoustic sounds from bells to heavy drums, energetic and paced rhythms, vocal melodies, bass lines and spontaneous dance and video projections.
SOAS BRASS BAND
Prepare your fine selves for this 12 piece vagabond collective of brass mania!? Horn-heavy audio happy-slap from London have been resurrected bigger, better, and even brassier than before. Playing a set packed with hip-hop, soul, smouldering jazzy licks and a liberal portion of Balkan fury. These guys have just gotten started, follow the Trumpets!
