This saturday our international friends of El Pulpo Collective are organising a special night in La Tentation, helped by Rebel Up! though we’ll not be there this night, as we are in Budapest for WOMEX.
The evening starts early with a concert by Galician folk musicians Narf & Uxia.
El Pulpo night will then kick off with special guests Los Demonios de la Cumbia!!!
This is the band project by DJ Kumbia Beats aka Marco Bustamente, resident of Antwerp but originally from Beni, Bolivia. This insatiable traveller, multi-instrumentalist and producer has formed a strong reputation over the last decade or so in the indigenous folk & electronic music scene of Bolivia. Los Demonios de la Cumbia is the result of a mix between 2 worlds, as they blend alternative electronic styles like moombathon with Colombian cumbia and Bolivian folk. Through this mix of traditional instruments and electronic effects one will hear the different Latin American nationalities represented in this group; Cuba, Bolivia, Chili, Paraguay and beyond. Fiesta pura with these demons!
Afterwards the DJ’s of Groovalizacion Radio /El Pulpo will provide all the tropical tunes you need to dance the whole night!
Groovalizacion Radio is a web radio station that started in 2008 and consists of journalists and cultural activists presenting shows with music from allover the globe, from traditional to urban sounds.
Gaetano Dub from Liege, who brings the wildest latin & roots tunes and Venezuelan DJ Jo Selector from Bruxelles will give you all the latin & african flavours mixed up for a heavy session of dancing.
