To celebrate their one-year anniversary Toronto's La Rumba Buena are flying up a very special guest from the US, Peace & Rhythm's own DJ Bongohead.
DJ Bongohead has been playing Latin music for more than two decades in venues large and small all across the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Spain. He has played at private parties for Fania Records, the Lincoln Center’s David Rubinstein Atrium, and Fez in NYC. He has guest DJed with DJ Turmix's Boogaloo Party at Nublu in Manhattan and has opened for old-school salsa greats like Tipica ’73, Orquesta Típica Novel, The Mambo Legends Orchestra, and Orquesta Broadway, as well as contemporary salsa bands like Bio Ritmo, Grupo Fantasma, La Excelecia/Orquesta Salsa Con Conciencia, Orquesta El Macabeo, Los Hacheros, Ola Fresca and more. This is Bongohead's first time playing Toronto and he will be bringing along his famous collection of rare and dance floor friendly salsa and tropical vinyl bangers!
La Rumba Buena is a night dedicated to classic Latin sounds inspired by the salsatecas in Cali, Havana, and New York. No frills, pure vibes, and a non-stop dance floor open to anyone who catches the rhythm.
La Rumba Buena just means a great party and ‘Rumber@s’ are people who love to dance. Expect to hear salsa, boogaloo, cumbia, guaguanco, son, rumba, descargas, mambo, cha-cha-cha, bomba and plena from the resident DJs. With a stack of vinyl collected over a decade from across the Americas, DJs Blancon and Drumspeak play out the sounds from the Latin Diaspora and bring La Rumba Buena to Toronto.
