THE RAMBUNCTIOUS SOCIAL CLUB presents
THE MEXICAN NIGHT OF THE DEAD BALL
BACK FOR IT’S SEVENTH YEAR!
The legendary Mexican Night of the Ball returns!
A dizzying spectacle of DJ dancefloor mayhem, live bands and Mexican magic will take over the bottom floor of Exeter Phoenix. A very special chance for YOU to dress up and celebrate with the dead in a creatively curious mix of lavish set-design, immersive, interactive experience and dynamic performance.
Sizzle in the sparks of blazing baselines and latin fire…navigate your mambo and let your groove gigolos Hodguez and Griff magic up your mojos and appease your creative hunger!
This is a fresh tropical newborn from key members of Bristol’s thriving Afro Latin scene. Transporting traditional Latin rhythms into the 21st century with synthesizers, effects and processors. Expect Cumbia, Rumba and Reggae with strong hints of Dub and Electro. However, make no mistakes, this is a live band, you will see, feel and hear every beat. The happy horns and playful percussion are the salad for which Spanish singer Marta Zubieta sits. Expect a tropical riot!
Cal Jader is one of the musical activists, founders and original ‘dancehall caballeros’ behind London cultural protagonists Movimientos. With his trademark blend of red hot ‘classico’ latin beats, uptempo carnival rhythms, tropical bass, and fresh global sounds he is helping to soundtrack the thriving underground scene with residencies across the capital.
Maracatu is a heavy Carnival rhythm from Recife, Brazil, with strong connections to the traditions of Candomble. Afon Sistema is a new percussion group in Bristol fusing percussion from North-East Brazil with rhythms from around the world.
These roaring drums and Maracatu rhythms will be helping raise the
dead in an ancestral frenzy!
