Preview: Lakuta + Native Sun + Luzmira Zerpa & Jack Yglesias from Family Atlantica + DJ Pete On the Corner @ Rich Mix (London, 28th April 2017)


Three bands, one DJ and a full load of upbeat rhythms that will let you dance and dance and dance and…

If that wasn’t enough, you’ll have tropical vibes and hip-hop rhymes, Afro-electro beats and Caribbean up-tempos, funky grooves and Latin traditional melodies all in one night. Actually, all in five hours, as it all happens between 8–1AM 28th April, when Rich Mix hosts the second Rhythm Passport night with Lakuta, Native Sun, Family Atlantica Duo and DJ Pete On the Corner.

After our February event (organised in collaboration with Movimientos), which saw Aurelio and Juanita Euka mesmerise the audience, we are back at the Shoreditch venue for another exciting show.

Since, we want you to enjoy a memorable night-out, we’ve invited some of the niftiest UK acts, starting with Luzmira Zerpa and Jack Yglesias (core members of Family Atlantica) and their warm Afro-Latin organic music flavours, which recalls Luzmira’s Venezuelan origins.

Then, it’s all about Caribbean, South-East African and urban atmospheres with London-based Native Sun and their blend of hip-hop, soul and Afro-rhythms, all the way to the grand finale, which will be literally ‘grand’.

Directly from the most ‘tropical’ city of the UK, Brightonians Lakuta bring their sunny and larger-than-life character to London’s East End. The 8-piece band, gathering together musicians from the four corners of the world, will show why the term world music is reductive and outdated. Keeping the party mood pumping throughout the night will be Pete from On the Corner Records and his great music selection.

So, ‘give your soul to the music’ and come have fun with us!
