Groovalizacion and Havana Club present a night of tropical surf rock and psychedelic Amazon cumbia with Los Chinches at the Mercantile.
This London based 8-strong band brings together a dynamic blend of Peruvian percussionists and London bred guitar and keyboard players, creating their own music and a unique sound that combines the kaleidoscopic vibes of Peruvian cumbia with a rock'n'roll spirit native to London.
And more good n...ews for all the Dublin tropicalistas, courtesy of Havana Club, there will be free rum tasting all night.
Los Chinches will be supported by the up-and-coming young singer/songwriter Aline Frazao, who will play a soulful music from Angola to Cape Verde.
“22 year old singer from Angola, Aline Frazão, was the big revelation of Cantos na Maré 2010. With her own compositions, her guitar and a captivating stage presence, this young artist diffuses a joyful array of music mixing all genres from bossa nova to fado.” El Mundo
