Our famed Cuban night returns!
This month is the turn of Orchestra Bombo, a London based, 12-piece juggernaut of Cuban carnival rhythms and dance, and Son Yambu who have bene described by the Evening Standard as ’the real sound of Santiago De Cuba’.
Bombo’s sound is a hotbed of swinging percussive grooves with the fiery call and response of horns and chorus, igniting the atmosphere of Havana carnival. Bringing ‘the conga dance’ back to its roots, their stunning dancers take the audience on a journey into the magic world of Cuban street music.
Son Yambu play authentic Cuban son – the essential Afro-Cuban sound that originated in the streets of eastern Cuba and gave rise to modern salsa; their music is an intoxicating fusion of Latin and African rhythms.
