A special sampler night of artists playing with the unstoppable, loping cumbia beat that is rattling the ribcages of a continent’s youth from Buenos Aires to Mexico City.

Headliner’s Mexican Institute of Sound make their UK debut “Cutting the high-octane pace from dance with energetically proud Mexican flavours is a fierce combination” Clash. Cumbia is just one ingredient but its flavour rubs off on everything else in the mix.

“ Nuts, quite frankly, and probably the most fun you can have without removing your poncho.” The Word

“Can’t stop listening to his frazzled mariachi remake of The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony’. It’s Amazing” Dazed & Confused

 
Buenos Aires’ own Axel Krygier and his band pop some twisted digital cumbia into their mix “...like a llama on speed...unashamedly, wonderfully weird stuff” Songlines



And kicking of the night is the defiantly Old School Cumbia of Pollito Boogaloo led by Colombia’s Rafael Berrio playing live in the style of classic 60s cumbia, vallenato and puya and mixing in a little dub proving that in cumbia to know where you are at you truly have to hear where you are from.



To complete this great night, the master of Arriba la Cumbia DJ Russ Jones aka Hackney Globetrotter will hit the night with a set of cumbia cuts and mestizo platters.


A fun packed welcome to the wild extremes of cumbia. So get your cumbia , vallenato hat, your poncho, wiro , cowbell, get this great offer to come and enjoy a big night in one of the most nice venues in London.
