“BRACE YOURSELVES FOR A BRAND NEW LATIN-INFLECTED NIGHT WITHIN THE FRIENDLY AND FASHIONABLE CONFINES OF EAST LONDON’S DALSTON…”

What is Salsa? Who invented the Mambo? What is the difference between Bomba and Plena? Should one lean towards Cuba or Puerto Rico in that age-old argument about the roots of Latin music? And where does Jazz enter the fray?

While these are all valid questions that ought to be addressed, what should override these debates is merely the pure enjoyment of these various sounds and rhythms which are generally accepted to have originated from Africa – by long way of the Americas.

Brace yourselves for a brand new Latin-inflected night within the friendly and fashionable confines of East London’s Dalston.

Descargas (derived from the word Descargar – a Spanish term to mean to offload) brings together four compeers from divergent backgrounds, each delving into his own repertoire to contribute towards telling the story in the most effective way i.e. through the music itself.

Come, drink, dance and enjoy yourselves as we ‘break out and set free’ some of our finest tunes for the occasion!
