22h Urban Latin Vibes dance workshop with Moira
23h-5h party with Global Riddims, El Matanzas & Mukambo
⫸ Moira (Bolivia): Latin Urban vibes is a crossover style that combines reggae, hip-hop, salsa, moombathon, reggaeton, merengue urbano and more social & street Latin dances which make life such a party! Sandra Carolina Delgadillo Porcel is interested in the authenticity of (street)culture and travelled a lot to learn about the origins of music and dance in Jamaica, New York, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic & beyond. Focus of the dance workshop is to flow to the music to find your own dance style on the dancefloor.
⫸ Global Riddims (Groovalizacion Radio): in the nineties Tony Heynen and his Mondo Grosso Soundsystem carried the message of putting funk, soul & jazz on a global level. 25 years later, he creates Global Riddims, a platform to support musicians and artists spreading the global vibes from the four corners of the world. His weekly Global Riddims show on Groovalizacion Radio serves the hottest releases from African to Latin Beats, from Balkan Brass to Klezmer, from Brazilian Favelas to Ethiopian Jazz and everything in between. Put on your dancing shoes for some funky tropicalismo!
⫸ El Matanzas (RadioChango) : radio host & DJ since 1999, the Frenchman is well-known from Radio Chango Sound System. Tireless & restless seeker of varied sounds & musical rarities, he has realized two compilations for the website Radio Chango. Specialized in cumbia and hip-hop remixes, his Latin & crossbreed blends alternate with political speeches and world-wide sound claims. Currently, the "mix-trotter" is finalizing the project "Latin Side of the Beastie Boys" full of cumbia remixes of the hip-hop veterans.
⫸ Mukambo (BRUZZ, Groovalizacion Radio): his weekly podcast Radio Mukambo immerses you in Afro-grooves and the pulsation of our cities where sounds get mixed up to create world fusion without borders. He's been making Brussels & beyond groove since 2011, was the driving force behind the popular Groovalicious parties and now launches this new party Groove Kilombo as a continuation of Festa Mukambo.
