Super Cumbia + Voodoo Jukebox + Sacha Dieu
July 1, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - July 2, 2016 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Super Cumbia was born on planet “Cum-bión”, in a tropical universe of South American imagination. In the city of Rosario, Argentina, he learned to walk, talk, play and sing with his guitar, and undertook an anthropological & musical survey of Argentina, Bolivia, Perú, Ecuador, Colombia & Uruguay, leading him to start to writing and composing Cumbia in a different way. He also founded ‘La Liga de la Alegria’ – his league of fellow superheroes that perform with him today.
Thus, they created ‘’Cumbia Del Monte”, a hybrid rhythm that has traces of reggae, hip hop, ragamuffin, murga, candombey, ska & punk, and boasts a healthy dose of Latino vitamins coursing through its veins. Cumbia Del Monte acts as a bridge, connecting South America and Europe with a tsunami of good vibes! The band’s infamous shows fuse contemporary sounds of the new generation with musical folklore, and of course… they wear super hero costumes.
‘’One of the most outstanding projects of these last years. Many thanks to Super Cumbia y la Liga de la Alegria and their capacity to make us unfold our wings of happiness and show us that there is another way of enjoying life…’’ — Ibiza Roots Festival
‘’Knowing that the last part of their name translates to the League of Happiness says it all. These were clearly guys that want to have fun and, fun they had, as did the growing audience watching them…’’
— “The Ibizan” (The Ibiza Sun)
Voodoo Jukebox play gypsy jazz (Rin-chnk) complete with full cheek, occasionally some silly costumes and with a setlist comprising of old jazz standards, 90’s hip hop and pop and modern disco and house – You are guaranteed an aftershock of humming at least one tune until it gets annoying.
Based in London, Sacha Dieu has been DJing professionally since the late 90s. Sacha plays many genres and styles (From 1920s jazz to rhythm and blues to the latest remixes, obscurities from around the world to well known classics). Sacha adapts his sets for each new occasion, however he is reputed for being one of the pioneers and specialists of Balkan gypsy music and global beats DJing in the UK.
