Arriba La Cumbia @ Passing Clouds
Arriba La Cumbia, London and probably the UK’s only dedicated cumbia party, has a cracking night featuring Colombian vallenato and cumbia, and Venezuelan ska, lined up for this Friday’s show at Passing Clouds.
The night will feature live music from:
Cumbe (Colombia/London) – Arriba La Cumbia favourites, headed up by Nadja Enab and Veronica Arcila Olaya. A great show of afro, tropical, colombian, cumbia, mapalé, porro and bullerengue with traditional costumes and dance for one big Colombian spectacle.
MC Onechot (Venezuela) – Currently Venezuela’s hottest musical property, on a European tour and in need of a London gig. Rapper, songwriter, musician, producer, reggae collaborator; he is the real deal and is sure to smash the night and bring a big London/Venezuelan contingent.
There will also be DJs Russ Jones (aka Hackney Globe Trotter), Cal Jader (Movimeintos) and upstairs hosted by Jerry Dammers.
Fri 9th Sept, 9pm-2.30am, £5 before 10pm £8 after
