A 'papayera' group is a collection of local musicians who play the souped-up brass-driven rhythms of cumbia and vallenato, which are so typical of Colombia's Caribbean coast. If you're planning a party in Baranquilla or any of Colombia's 'costa' towns, a papayera group will guarantee you fun, mayhem and a right royal rumpus while the aguardiente flows freely.

This particular papayera combo comprises a bunch of ex-pat Colombians living in London, All have impressive pedigrees as musicians and names on the vibrant London Latin scene. Together they'll remind you just what happy chaos a little sunshine, good spirits and great music can cause when combined mashed up together by the experts.

With and added twist of passion, magic, dancing and costumes this colourful, energetic, tropical, Afro-Colombian show, rarely heard in Britain, soon becomes a fiesta.
