Dancing all the way from DR Congo to Venezuela with a stopover in Paris. That’s how you can sum up what Soundcrash is offering you on the 16th of November at Islington Assembly Hall when Belgian MC (of Congolese origins) Baloji will share the stage with Parisienne electro-beat wizard débruit and exhilarating London-based but Tropical rooted band Family Atlantica.

It will be about Congolese rumba, hip-hop, Afro-Latin and –electro constantly upbeat, smiling and shiny…and you’ll hardly find a more exciting night to dance away.
