Afrobrasiliana **Latin & African vibes** [FRIDAY – 29.07.2016]
Fresh crates of Tropical riddims from Africa, Latin American and The Caribbean that will get you moving and shaking all night long… the AFROBRASILIANA crew have been working extremely hard and now established themselves as one of the most fun and positive vibed parties this city has seen.
For this next session, we have enlisted Sydney stalwart HARRY SOUNDS of the PARADISE LOST and HIGH SPIRITS parties. An avid collector of African music we thought it was time to invite the man down to flex his skills across the Tropical music spectrum. Expect nothing but heavyweight selections of Afro Boogie, Soul and Funk with a few suprises thrown in for good measure.
