- Manzana Tropical, playing psychedelic tropical cumbia aka Chicha! Yes, Manzana Tropical will be indulging us with covers of classic Chicha tunes from, among others, Grupo Nectar, Los Pakines and Chacalon. Yes, Chacalon!
Manzana Tropical is an exciting new Latin act from London playing the form of Peruvian Cumbia known as Chicha. Having been brought up immersed in London’s thriving Latin American musical community young musicians Manuy and Cleyder Figueroa began the project inspired by the heritage of their motherland in Peru.
Their music incorporates a homage to classic Peruvian acts including Grupo Nectar, Los Pakines and Chacalon as well as Latin legends such as Santana combined with a strong London sensibility. Manzana’s live set comprises some re-interpretations of Chicha classics and some original songs.
The band also contains the core musicians from one of the finest Andean fusion acts – Kausary - who have played at most of the UK’s top festivals and have toured extensively in Europe.
Followed by a DJ set from the Southern Exposure DJs spinning Latin American and Spanish rock classics (Soda Stereo, Cafe Tacuba, Prisioneros, Novalima, Aterciopelados, Leuzemia, Heroes del Silencio, Molotov, Lucybel, Electro Z, Siniestro Total, etc) plus South American rarities (Os Mutantes, Traffic Sound, Los Saicos, etc).
Rumbaba Deluxe is a spanish - English band who are playing their own original music and also some covers with a mix of Latin, spanish, funk and flamenco flavours, old and new, rocky and funky, daring to improvise a reggae, a son montuno or even drum n'bass. Rumbaba Deluxe plays every friday at The Castle in Portobello road - Ayoze Hernandez, Joe James, Adrian el Tete. www.myspace.com/rumbabadeluxe
