30 June : NYC SALSA with Grupo Magnetico in Concert

30 June : NYC SALSA with Grupo Magnetico in Concert

We team up with Movimientos & Latinos in London to present a summer Sunday session dedicated to the colourful world of New York salsa in the company of Grupo Magnético, hailed as one of the most exciting new voices in Latin music.
 
Salsa has always been intrinsically tied to the Big Apple, ever since the 50s when a huge Cuban population emigrated to New York to escape the revolution of their homeland. That then paved the way for the birth of New York salsa over the subsequent decades, becoming one of the city's most notorious and universally loved genres in the process.
An eclectic group of musicians from South America and the UK, Grupo Magnético were drawn together by a mutual love of 1970s salsa and an obsession to play homage to the music of their heroes.
 
Their debut album Positivo, released on highly acclaimed Scottish label Athens Of The North, has been met with universal love from DJ’s worldwide including, Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles and has been included in many music critics highlights of 2018. Tracks including ‘Vampiras’ and the bands cover of ‘Papa Was a Rolling Stone’ have become hits in salsa clubs as far afield as New York and Cali, Colombia and Positivo.

To celebrate Colombian Independence Day this year we welcome none other than vibraphone virtuoso Dorance Lorza to Viva Colombia!.
Dorance Lorza & Sexteto Cafe have been one of the leading bands in the vibrant and exciting London salsa scene since they formed in 1996.
Pioneering the worldwide “salsa con vibes” revival of the late 1990s, they were one of the first bands in Europe to favour the small combo salsa sound of 1960s/1970s bands like Joe Cuba Sextet/ New Swing Sextet/Pete Terrace Combo rather than that of the more common big brass-heavy salsa orchestras of the day.
An special night tribute from London to Cali including original and classic hits with a diversity of rhythms from salsa to Cumbia and introducing his new sound to the audience.
On the decks will join us our special guest Edna Martinez DJ from Cartagena de Indias bringing her Colombian Caribbean influence and selection of African organic rhythms, Tropical sounds, Champeta, Cumbia and a diversity of Latin vibes.
