Fiesta en la Calle finishes its summer residency with a bang!20 August, 2010
Fiesta en la Calle will be holding their final party at Camino on Sunday 29th August, making the most of the bank holiday weekend. The only bad thing about this event is that it means the summer is drawing to a close. It has to be said it has been one of the finest Latino summers in London, with a ridiculous amount of exciting things going on. Of course, Fiesta en la Calle and Camino have been a big part of this. Their final event was going to feature Khantara, but due to Visa problems they’ve pulled leaving us with one of the most exciting bands in London performing instead. It didn’t actually work out too bad did it? This is what the organisers have to say about the event:
Pollito Boogaloo, translated as “little dancing chicken”, deliver raw Afro-Colombian roots music drawing from classic 60s Cumbia, Vallenato and Puya and mixing in a little dub and some Haitian voodoo! Fronted by the charismatic Colombian Rafael Berrio they are one of Brighton’s hottest Latino outfits regularly tearing up all nighters in some of the south coast’s smokiest basements and recently played a storming London debut at the Arriba La Cumbia clubnight at legendary venue Passing Clouds. Their heavyweight sound is totally infectious, irresistibly danceable and perfect for the bank holiday carnival fiesta!
There will be support from everyone’s favourite party starters and Latin culture custodians Movimientos on the decks, as well as fantastic food, fantastic beer from fantastic frosty glasses and the fantasticness of free entry!
