with special guest DJ Anacaona and Rebel Up SebCat support.

The infamous party Tropikal Masala, which has been shaking Paris underground nightlife a few years back, bringing together the then emerging Cumbia / Tropical scene with relatively unknown musical genres from the “Orient”, punjabi Bhangra, middle-eastern Dabke or north-african Chaabi and Amazigh sounds…

Hailing from the early venezuelian rave scene, dj and tattoo artist ANACAONA brings you the fire from the Carribean with her top-notch vinyl selection. Expect rare gems from the Afro-cuban traditions, Guaguanco, Boogaloo, Son, Guaracha, as well as the most obscure psychedelia from latinamerican 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. Deep-rooted Orishas invocations meet bizarre, early electronic music experiments and some new-wave and acid bursts. Resident of the Fania Brava party in Berlin, this discrete & experimented music lover and selecta has made quite an impression at this year’s Fusion Festival, with two amazing sets at some of the festival’s legendary stages.
