The next Mambista on October 23rd marks our first birthday!!!
In the last year we’ve hosted some amazing bands; I’ve played lashings of luscious tunes; we’ve reconnected with old friends and made lots of new ones – so for our big day we have booked a big band. Here To Havana is an Afro Cuban orquesta and they will be aiming to rock you like your back ain’t got no bone, with their crackling Rhythm and Sharp Style, playing contemporary renditions of Latin and Afro Cuban classics – Son, mambo, rumba, cha-cha-cha and boogaloo – from the likes of Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Chucho Valdez, Cachao and Cal Tjader. Expect Mambista Partay Plus.
We loosen up with Newton’s salsa dance class at 7 (beginners welcome).
