Los Van Van

Cuba's biggest, funkiest dance orchestra returns to London for the first time in two years. Formed in 1969 in Havana, Cuba, this 20-piece band plays an irresistible brand of dance groove they created called 'songo' - a solid and invigorating fusion of rich Caribbean rhythms, Afro-Cuban drumming, salsa & rock/pop elements. This new sound is still the rhythm of Havana and one of the most influential Cuban forms since the cha-cha-cha. Featuring a fearsome collection of virtuoso musicians, their live shows are all about the relationship between the band and the dancefloor, with call-and-response Afro-Cuban conga, sharp horns and violin riffs, vocal improvisations drifting in and out between their solid groove.
