Arriba la Cumbia @ The Hootananny
London’s and probably the UK’s only dedicated cumbia party Arriba la Cumbia returns to South London and the brilliant Hootananny for one almighty line up of live acts.
So good it’s hard to work out who goes first and who is the headline… Manazana Tropical is an exciting new Latin act from London playing the form of Peruvian Cumbia known as Chicha.
Latin Dub Soundsystem. With a new album about to the drop they are seriously hot. Mixing up the best of latin and tropical street flavours and with of course some cumbia influences it is a treat to have them back yet again.
Los Chinches (above). Building a great rep for their live show and with a big following to boot these guys’ take on 70’s peruvian, pyschedelic, cumbia chica is pure tropical rock n roll. Sure to raise the roof and tear up the dancefloor.
Hosting the proceedings and DJing as always is Russ Jones aka Hackney Globe Trotter and resident DJ Cal Jader of Movimientos.
