FRIDAY 13TH JUNE
TROPICAL STORM presents a hot summer fiesta special!

LIVE:
***FAMILY ATLANTICA***
A band that could only have formed in the multicultural mecca of London, Family Atlantica are fronted by the Venezuelan vocal powerhouse Luzmira Zerpa, London-born percussionist Jack Yglesias, and Nigerian/Ghanaian percussionist Kwame Crentsil.

 

Together, their fusion explores the wealth of music on either side of the Atlantic. Zerpa's rich and expressive voice, underpinned by intoxicating rhythms, delves into stories from Africa and the Americas with unparalleled joy and enthusiasm, uniting the music of the African diaspora.

 

Succinctly summarising their ethos, Yglesias told Songlines, 'music unites people, it builds a bridge between individuals across the Atlantic.' And that is exactly what Family Atlantica have managed to do, creating an album of passionate, joyous music that is thoroughly enlightened by a rich history of peoples, but at the same time, very much a contemporary sound.

 

***UNITED VIBRATIONS***
Cosmodelic Afro-Punk, Mulatto music, whatever you want to call it - it is HERE and it is NOW!

After the US consulate initially granted visas to Yussef, Ahmad and Kareem Dayes, they have now been revoked. Between them, they make up…

Review: Family Atlantica @ Battersea Arts Centre (London, 14th September 2016)

It’s always good to go back to the Family. You can constantly feel at home with them and experience that comfortable atmosphere which smoothly makes you at ease. I don’t know if that’s because of the music they play, attitude they have, or good vibes they give out, but every…

Album Review: Family Atlantica – Cosmic Unity [Soundway, 13th May 2016]

Family Atlantica is ‘London’s musical melting pot at it’s very best’ according to reviews from The Guardian. The band, which consists of London-born multi-instrumentalist Jack Yglesias, Venezuelan vocalist Luzmira Zerpa, and half-Nigerian, half-Ghanian percussionist Kwame Crentsil, started out in an abandoned vicarage in Hackney, East London, before winning fans over with…
