Sat 31st Jan - Aji Pa'ti

Aji Pa’ti is the sonic collision of ancient and modern, folklore and tropical, Latin America and Europe. It is the bridge between tradition and fusion. The secret of Aji Pa’ti’s inimitable style lies in the interplay between charango, guitar and ukulele and the contagious driving rhythm section of timbales, bass and congas. Indira Roman’s voice effortlessly soars over the classic Latin American polyrhythms, creating one of the most exciting bands to emerge out of the UK in recent years. Hailing from Cuba, Colombia, Jamaica, Australia and Britain, Aji Pa’ti are a truly international band whose original material has ignited many dance floors across the UK. This is the new tropical folk sound!
Starts 10pm, £2 Entry.
