Arriba La Cumbia @ The Hootananny
Arriba La Cumbia return to Brixton’s Hootananny for a special mid-winter show. There will be latin vibes, cumbia running through the veins, DJ Russ Jones aka Hackney Globe Trotter on the decks as well as three top live bands.
Los Independentes del Vallenato are new on the scene but hoping for longevity with their mix of cumbia classics and vallenato, two of Colombia’s proudest musical sons. Katy Prado & The Mambaleros will be offering something a little different, a highly party-friendly mix of rockabilly, big band Latin style and cha-cha-cha, with a touch of boogaloo just to keep people on their toes. Finishing the line-up will be Papayera, an authentic, folkloric cumbia band who you might want to call the finest in all of the UK.
