LA GALLERA SOCIAL CLUB
Direct from Venezuela for their Debut UK gig

 

La Gallera Social Club are an exciting trip filled with Venezuelan folklore, psychedelia and traditional atmospheres from South American culture. You can hear the protest of the oppressed people with a touch of bright hopes, because it is here where Latin America and the Caribe vibrate.

 

"La Gallera" is the country, the joy, the fun, the place where the roosters get together, not to fight but to sing and dance, bringing back the cadence of the traditional melodies or Venezuelan music, playing the instruments to show the greatness of the soul.

 

Miguel, Alexis and Carlos took to the "Gallera" to make their music, creating a country a social club: a place to get together, for friendship, communication and celebration. There's not fighting in this cockpit, only colorful joy!

 

Expect bright colours, classic latin rhythms, and a little bit of madness from the dancing roosters.


ERI OKAN
Getting hyped for Notting Hill Carnival

Eri Okan = Consciência = Conscience

The cultural movement grows, breathes and with each breath ideas are born. Eri Okan: a band, an afro-block, an expression of original street culture, integral to London; its roots in Samba-Reggae and the Afro-centric music of North East Brazil fused with Afro Beat and Jamaican Reggae.

 

Banda Afro Eri Okan have been performing since 2003. Clubs, festivals, street parties and special events. Since 2004, the 50 piece street ensemble Bloco Afro Eri Okan have paraded at the Notting Hill Carnival every year.

 

At the core of an Eri Okan performance is a drum section of between four and twenty percussionists. They knock out the amazing sounds of the repinique, timbau, surdo and caixa; backing up the singing and songwriting talents of Xavier Osmir (Brazil), Seyi Adjeigbe (Nigeria), Marcina Arnold (UK) and Rebeca Valim (Brazil).


TOO MUCH LOVE

At the core of T.M.L are Vicky and Simi - siblings and songwriting partners who have been playing music together their whole lives. Vicky, weaned on Herbie Hancock, combines rich, soulful vocals with irresistibly groovy keyboard lines, while her brother's guitar scratches and syncopations lend the music an infectious energy.

 

The siblings are backed up by a killer rhythm section consisting of bass ('The Sheppard'), drums ('Tito'), and bongos ('The Count') whose funky, afro-cuban rhythms are guaranteed to make you move. The band is rounded off by another family connection - 'The Red Hot Horns'. These two brothers produce massive, joyful horn lines imbued with the elegance of jazz.
