4 De Diciembre

4 de Diciembre knows what dance music is about; having a cutting-edge sound with modern harmonies whilst remaining firmly grounded in Afro-Cuban traditions. The ensemble is equally comfortable interpreting sones and son montunos as it is performing its own original salsa-timba compositions. The band is named after the date of Chango's day, the Afro-Cuban Orisha of fire and music, the eve of which is commemorated with much music, dance and revelry all across the island. 4 de Diciembre was named following a coincidence: the first recording of one theme track called "Nueva Generación" fell on a 3rd of December, where its final inspiración went: "Festejemos como si mañana fuera 4 de Diciembre"

We regularly present shows from small bars to the largest concert halls and also present many world class musicians from other genres. Como No founded La Linea – The London Latin Music Festival – in 2001 and has presented this annual event in venues across central London each April since then. The Festival aims to present the best of what is new and current in music of Latin origin and has given UK debuts to many artists such as Seu Jorge, Pink Martini, Gotan Project and Kinky. This century Como No has developed an interest in presenting dance from Latin America and currently works on projects with Carlos Acosta (for whom we have produced shows since 2003), Danza Contemporánea de Cuba and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba. We are continuing to develop our touring show Lucha Future, which combines Mexican masked wrestlers with music, and managing Spanish Bombs a live and recording band connecting the tropical music of the faraway Latin towns to the London sound of The Clash. Since 2011 we have produced Vamos, London’s guide to the Latin Summer online and in print, in partnership with Jungle Drums. Our aim with Vamos is to give profile to the wide range of Latin creativity happening in our city, one of the great Latin cultural hubs of the world.

The 11-piece lineup (2 vocalists, 3 percussionists, 4 horns, piano and bass) lends itself to an expansive ‘BIG BAND’ sound – without losing the dynamism and spark of a small group; and combines sensuous vocals, sophisticated horn lines and explosive percussion solos. With their vision to unite the rhythms of the Americas, their music is uplifting, inspiring and unifying, and celebrates the melting pot of cultures that arose out of the African Slave Trade, whilst focusing on the Afro-Cuban and globalised SALSA idioms which have become significant musical languages and forms of solidarity and cultural exchange among communities throughout the world. Whilst ‘salsa’ remains the focus of what they do, DIÁSPORA isn’t your regular ‘salsa band’... It’s a Latin band, in the wider sense; freely mixing ‘salsa’ idioms with other influences – African, Spanish, Antillean, Caribbean, South and North American – to bring you a fresh, funky and unique Latin music experience. With their critically acclaimed fusion of rhythms from throughout the Americas, DIÁSPORA is one of the most exciting new projects to emerge on the UK Latin scene today.

Diáspora

Diáspora - London-based Latin band Clave... To us the word goes beyond explanations and definitions. It means life, salsa, the food of our leisure time, the motion of intense rhythm, the emotion of 20,000 people simultaneously grooving to the natural sounds of life. It’s being played in beat, on key, on clave... It means to be on top of things, to be playing it right... Clave is history, it’s culture. African drums from far off places like Nigeria, Dahomey and Ghana married the Spanish guitar to bring us clave. The seeds were planted in the Caribbean and now their grandchild is Salsa... Formed in Spring 2009, we are a group of musicians from a multitude of different backgrounds and walks of life brought together to play LATIN MUSIC. Our music celebrates the unity and diversity of rhythms that emerged out of the African Diaspora and their dissemination throughout the Americas... we create, we blend, we transform, we transmit. Most importantly, we have come together with a common objective: to SHARE and to EMBRACE. We have performed all over the UK, touring concert venues, events (private / corporate), festivals, weddings and parties. We have had fantastic reviews; from dancers both seasoned salseros and amateur amantes who have come to enjoy our experience, keeping them on their feet all night, aficionados of the music and general punters out for a great time. The buzz that we have created has been fantastic and the quality of the musicians in the band has drawn in considerably large audiences. Every show is like a new beginning, and we always succeed in creating that magical atmosphere. No matter how much the band develops from show to show, our fundamental aims remain the same: to share and to embrace. The band is a crossroads of musicians coming from different backgrounds, constantly returning with new gems and sparks of inspiration - in this sense it is a true Diáspora. Through these journeys we have not only learned about music, but we have learned about life... Salsa is rooted in the African trinity of love, food and religion (emotional, physical and spiritual fulfillment) and this is at the heart of our music.

Lido 66 was formed in September 2003 as a collaboration between dance producer Hal Ritson and Puerto Rican singer Abel Baerga-Ortiz. Bringing together strong roots of Afro-Caribbean drumming and an ethos from western dance music the band focuses on bringing salsa and Cuban music to a club audience. Lido 66 is a ten-piece band and traditional instrumentation is used - in particular its two Havana-trained percussionists bring authentic Havana-style Afro-Cuban percussion to the mix. Lido 66 play a monthly residency at Afro-Cubism, London. Their manic intensity on stage is infectious - the press have described the night as being closer to a ‘Latin rave’ than a gig.

Tomasz

London's Salsa scene know him as Tomasz Tomasito for his bounding smiley energy since 2005. He came to the UK almost 12 years ago and made his first steps in Salsa a year later in Kingston-upon-Thames. Tomasz as a youngster was always involved in sport, starting with football where he played in the league, then Martial Arts (Taekwondo, Thai boxing, Kick boxing and Korean karate). He also holds a Skydiving licence and was in the Scuba diving team whilst he served in the Military. Upon arrival in London he decided to leave the " old Tomasz " and take his first steps toward what he always wanted to do: DANCE. You never have to ask Tomasz twice to go out dancing. He's the guy who is always first on the dance floor and the last one off. Following his passion, the new Tomasito started to learn Cuban salsa and very soon after joined local dance groups in Kingston. They perform in local festivals and promote dance schools at local events. He started teaching for his local Suave Salsa Club and soon became recognized in the Surrey area. His next step was with Michel Mandrel, former Tropicana World Open Salsa Champion and Rueda de Casino Los Mandrelles dance troupe. It was an amazing journey for him and his firsts steps into the big world of salsa; his first experience on the big stages such as El Grande and others around the Greater London area. Through this journey he developed great friendships with team members like Christian Jean-Francois Kizomba Dilary Enchufla Doble Patricia De Souza Kasia Marszal Lorraine Richards amongst others. Over two years ago his dancing hit the next stage when he became part of RDM Rueda Del Mundo, led by Fadi K, former Tropicana World Open Salsa Champion. He started performing on internationally recognised stages including the UK Congress, Teeside, Romania, Amsterdam, London Cuban Congress and many more smaller dance events and charity events. Tomasz is already booked for the biggest Festivals in the UK and Europe this year: Berlin, Paris, Romania, Amsterdam, Hamburg and others. He always say " the more you dance the more you want it. It is a drug and I am addicted. When you hit that flow and stop thinking about what you're going to do next it's like sex or skydiving. Just present in the moment; nothing else exists." You can find him teaching in West London where he opened his school JUST DANCE LATIN. He also teaches across London in places like El Grande and Kingston. He teaches his favourite "tricks and dips " classes in festivals like the Romanian Congress. Tel: 07473911163
