Would you like to dance or listen to any Peruvian music?
Your best chance to do this is next 2nd November at Hootananny Brixton with ZAMBO! live to celebrate few days after the Criolla Music Day or Creole Music Day in London. Creole music is Peru's national music and its role in Peruvian culture. Creole music is a fusion of native Peruvian, African and Spanish music. Creole Music Day is a holiday dedicated to keeping this type of music alive.
This special day you would hear the sound of guitars and the "cajón peruano". These musical instruments give rhythm to marinera, tondero, festejo, landó, and zamacueca which are five samples of the creole music.
LIVE SHOW: ZAMBO!
His music carries the fusion of African rhythm and Latin melody. Their background is based on different rhythms of black Peruvian music such as Festejos, Landos, Socavones, Zamacuecas and also includes rhythms from La Lima Criolla such as the famous Peruvian vals,and the Marinera Limeña with the constant sounds of drums, (congas, cajón, bongos, cajita,etc.. ), and the mélody of classical and modern strings exploring new sounds (classical or electric guitar and electrónic bass), melódic voices and energétic dancers.
Also we will be celebrating Peruvian creole music day (Dia de la cancion criolla) opening the show with special guest Phaxsi Coca.
