Welcome friends to a special night where Balkan beats meet Cumbia! These two cultures have been dancing and partying together with a mutual love of mustaches, accordions, brass instruments, and oompah beats for over a hundred years now. A mixture of Balkan/Cumbia/Dub/Ska/Klezmer sounds, this event is going to be Rad!!. Live performances by Mngwa A 9-piece band made up of Russians, Mexicans, and Canadians, they are a strange beast indeed. What began with the intention of playing South American cumbia has quickly evolved into something much more nebulous. Mixing in elements of psychedelic rock, dub, African rhythms, and vocals in four languages, MNGWA injects the local music scene with a fresh global perspective. They call it "Vancumbia Ambush". Based in East Vancouver, MNGWA is earning a reputation as a juggernaut party band, hosting underground shows that include video projections, costumes, puppets, live artwork, and a colourful entourage of weirdos.
