Charanga del Norte Performance 28 October

Charanga del Norte perform at Seven Arts, Leeds on Saturday 28 October 2017.

Charanga del Norte launch their new EP Charanga Time to showcase their new New York-styled charanga set.

Expect pachanga, bugalu, and New York infused Afro-Cuban dance music styles by the likes of Charlie and Eddie Palmieri, Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Orquesta Broadway and Pete Rodríguez.

With a string section and guest bugalu brass this gig features high energy improvisations and clave-driven grooves: as New York DJ Al Angeloro says: ‘If you can’t dance with them . . you died last week’ (WBAI Radio/The Montuno Sessions).
