Mambista – Fri 26th February




We’re back on Fri 26th February!!! 

Our Mambista nights are a totally fabulous way to groove the night away – and we always have loads planned for the fourth Friday of the month in the warm embrace of the Portico Gallery.

The evening kicks off again with a Salsa dance class at 7pm to loosen up those limbs and get boogie-ing!

At 8pm Gerry Lyseight picks up the mood with DJ duties on either side of live music.  This month we’re loving the return of Jazz Carib – with their rootical mix of jazz, reggae and ska.

We were always going to get Jazz Carib back after their wonderful September session but as their drummer extraordinaire, Kenrick Rowe, is going off on tour with PJ Harvey soon we’ve brought them forward to February 26th. Alongside Kenrick we’ll have Bammi Rose, Alan Weekes, Lance Rose and Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton whose combined credits include playing for Jazz Jamaica, Jazz Warriors, Ska Cubano, Aswad, The Beatles, The Mighty Diamonds, Janet Kay and Georgie Fame. To be hosting a band with their pedigree and sheer musicality is a privilege.  Not to be missed.

19.00- midnight.  Salsa class 19.00-20.00hrs.  Mambista from 20.00 til midnight.

FEAST Film – Soy Cuba (PG) – Sat 13 June

The Portico Gallery is proud to host FEAST Film’s Cuba Night…with Soy Cuba… in association with Mambista.  Plus a DJ set from Gerry Lyseight of the popular Mambista night, photographic images of Cuba by Anna Hindocha and a selection of Cuban cocktails to accompany the film.

Made in 1964, Soy Cuba is a Soviet-Cuban production conceived as an epic cinematic poem using innovative techniques including breathtaking tracking shots created with rudimentary equipment. From the opening scene the hallucinogenic and visually stunning camerawork envelops the viewer in a tropical world on the brink of massive change. Through four different stories, the film shows the transition of the island from American oppression to socialist revolution. Removed from distribution in Cuba and Russia after only a week, Soy Cuba was virtually unknown until the 1990s when it was rediscovered and championed by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.

8pm Doors open
8–8.45pm DJ Gerry Lyseight (Mambista)
8.45pm Soy Cuba (I am Cuba)

Tickets just £5.  Bar, cocktails and snacks available.
