NORCA Presents Carnavalia – a night of carnival-inspired music
An evening of carnival-inspired and infused music to put fire in your soul and movement in your feet. From the riot of Rio to the heat of Havana this is not a night to miss. Two big bands steeped in Latin rhythms to get the party jumping. A regular sold-out night, so buy your tickets early.
“Super music …. and a brilliant atmosphere …. a sort of micro festival vibe.”
Rabo de Foguete
Rabo brings you the energy of Brazilian music combined with the power of a bateria (or extended percussion section). Offering an eclectic mix, from Brazilian classics such as Tim Maia, Sergio Mendez and Lenine, to the songs of Cat Empire and their own original material. It’s a vibrant show that infuses Brazilian grooves with traditional and contemporary material to create a high-energy performance, bringing colour and infectious rhythm. Sure to get you dancing. Visuals will be provided by VJ MOU.
Orchestra Bombo is a London based, 12-piece juggernaut of Cuban carnival rhythms and dance. Their sound is a hotbed of swinging percussive grooves with the fiery call and response of horns and chorus, igniting the atmosphere of Havana carnival. Bringing ‘the conga dance’ back to its roots, their stunning dancers take the audience on a journey into the magic world of Cuban street music.
