African, Latin, tropical night with one of the world's top vinyl collectors
£4/£5 on the door
Touching down again after April's debut, La Bomba is back with another night of the toughest African, Latin and Island sounds from DJs John Stapleton and Boom Operator, with very special guest Cassawarrior, visiting from Australia.
La Bomba plays the best sounds strictly from original vintage vinyl - from highlife to afrobeat to benga, from cumbia to salsa to boogaloo.
DJ Cassawarrior is a Melbourne based musician and African music collector/DJ who spends half of each year travelling the world in search of the finest in rare vinyl gems. Extended periods of time spent in Africa have refined his DJ sound in Afro-Funk, Highlife, Afro-Latin as well as other related Coastal & Tropical selections, not forgetting his special passion for 'Golden Era' Ethiopian music.
His Ethiopian discs are among some of the most rare and sought after in the world, with his love affair of these sounds from ‘the Horn of Africa’ being initiated while playing bass guitar and touring with Ethiopian music greats Mulatu Astatke, Mahmoud Ahmed and Alemayehu Eshete.
Cassawarrior is also a DJ regular at Glastonbury Festival, as well as being a radio presenter with Australia's premiere independent radio station PBS 106.7 fm.
