    Join us on Friday 20 April for a Latin music explosion as we welcome three of London’s premier live Latin bands in the form of MalphinoSamba Azul & Brixton Cumbia Association!

    Limited advance tickets available here!

    Plus DJs spinning till 3am!


    Malphino is a mysterious band from an imaginative tropical island of the same name that plays cumbia and a heady mix of exotic sounds. Their music serves as a cinematic score to the backdrop of this mystical isle and its ethos.

    The musicians of Malphino reinterpret the traditional banda, playing organ, accordion, tuba, and an array of percussion and rhythms from all corners of the world. Their unique take on the style is no doubt influenced by their diverse membership. Malphino is a gathering of nationalities whose members hail from Japan, Malaysia, Colombia, France, UK and the Philippines, and are based in London. This central idea of multiculturalism is the foundation for Malphino’s conceptual music project.
