Atlantico present a tribute evening of marvellous Cumbia Music, remembering their much missed singer & percussionist, the late great Rosy Maguire. Tickets £5 in advance or £7 on the door with all profits going to the Maytree charity in Rosy’s memory.
Featuring sensational Colombian vocalist Antonio Porras from Bogota, Atlantico are Britain’s leading exponents of Cumbia, the rootsy music most closely associated with Colombia.
The dynamic line up includes Latin percussionist Ernesto Cabrera and three horn players together with congas bass and piano. Atlantico present “Musica Tropical” at it’s very steamiest and most contagious. You just won’t be able to sit still when this band is playing. Whether they are locked into the back-beat of Cumbia, galloping through the loping rhythm of a Porro, or throwing in some Mambo, Merengue or Colombia’s own style of Salsa, you have to get up and move to the joyful rhythm. No dance lessons needed!
