Preview: Balabam’s 1st Year Anniversary Party @ Balabam (London; Saturday 15th December 2018)

Balabam1stBirthday

Come December, we are all in that greetings mood. So, join us on the 15th of December to say “Happy Birthday” to one of our favourite and liveliest new music spots in London.

It was May 2017 when Balabam first opened its doors, but it was late in the year that the Tottenham venue became fully operational with its event agenda overflowing with Mediterranean and rootsy sounds.

There’s no better time than mid-December to exchange some rhythmic wishes with the Balabam big and happy family and no better way than to enjoy some good music to dance the party away.

On Saturday 15th, you will indeed have a full house of hearty sounds with Colomboloco, Kasai Masai and Amaraterra plus DJ Aly Prince, DJ Talava and DJ Ritu to keep up the tempo during the stage changes. There’ll be a bit of Spanish flamenco, a good deal of Southern Italian tarantella and pizzica, some Greek rebetiko, Turkish folk and even a profusion of Congolese soukous and Afro-funk.

Bring your own smile and dancing shoes!

Preview: Amaraterra + DJ Aly Prince @ Hootananny (London; Sunday 26th April 2020)

One Sunday night in Autumn 2018, they turned Hootananny upside down with their frenzied pizzica and taranta rhythms. So, we thought it was time to set the tarantula free and let it bite Brixton once again. On the 26th of April, Amaraterra will liberate into South London all the Mediterranean-scented…

Event Review: Kanda Bongo Man @ Komedia (Brighton; Saturday 12th October 2019)

Within seconds of entering the room, the sense of anticipation was palpable. One felt sure that some exciting Congolese rhythms were certain to banish any rainy-day blues. The band made their way on to the stage, nonchalantly picked up their instruments and began to play their opening number, sung by…
