Afrobrasiliana **Global Vibes + Tropical Rhythms** [FRIDAY – 02.12.2016]
The freshest Tropical dance floor sounds from Africa, The Carribean, Latin America and beyond, this side of the equator.
For the last few sessions our AB brother WALKING FISH has been absent but now he’s back, returning from a stint in West Africa he’s armed with a fresh batch of Tropical music goodness and a stack of hard to get and rare finds. We’ve decided to give him headline duties so he can share some of this heat, warm the dancefloor and blow your minds with these new sounds. This will be a very special evening and the last official AB party of the year so come celebrate with us and create more special vibes as we say thank you for another magical year at our spiritual home PLAY BAR before we return bigger and better in 2017.
* Remember to come down early to experience the full breadth and depth of the music we play. We run deep *
