On Friday 17th dance the night away to ERI OKAN BLOCO and DJ Chilango!
After the room-shaking success of their brilliant opening gig at the Joga Bola! festival, ERI OKAN BLOCO are back at Rich Mix to keep those Brazilian party vibes alive at CASA 2014. With over 15 drummers, a bad-ass horn section, and Brazilian diva Rebeca Valim bringing alive a furious fusion of the drums of Bahia, old school Afro-samba grooves and samba reggae vibes, this is sure to set the dancefloor jumping, and set the final weekend off in style.
Live music followed by a DJ set from Chilango (Oscar Arroyo), who was born and grew up in Mexico City; he moved to London around 6 years ago where he started exploring nu-cumbia and some other tropical rhythms, and to DJ regularly in parties and special events like Pisco Disco, Movimientos, Muévete, Glastonbury Festival, London MexFest, etc.
His sets are highly influenced by ZZK Records and Surtek Collective; he also likes to play lots of bassy electro-cumbia, moombahton and tropical mash-ups, that he describes as music “alebrijes”. Check out his music here!
And on Saturday 18th October, shake your hips with one of London’s most established, prolific and exciting Latin Amercan band… CONJUNTO SABROSO!
They will keep the audience glued to the dance floor with the hottest traditional Latin American rhythms: Salsa, Son, Cha cha, Bolero, Cumbia and more! Get in the mood by listening to their descarga jam here!
