WARA gigs coming up this summer

7 July 2018 - 5 August 2018

Details

Influenced by the fieriest of contemporary Havana grooves and mobilized by the dynamic sounds of London's underground, Wara's pan-Latin musical pioneers have crafted a hard-hitting and contagious style. Canny and astute, the blazing vocals of Juanita Euka (London Afrobeat Collective) and Fedzilla (Movimientos) bring a swagger-heavy attitude to a rich mix of dembow, Afro-Latin folklore, hip-hop and reggae.
Led by producer and composer Eliane Correa, their 2013 debut album ‘Leave To Remain' was greeted by a full house at the London Jazz Café and received a 4-star review in The Guardian . Now stronger than ever in their new 6-piece format, the band is preparing to record their highly anticipated second album ‘Mambo Libre', an incendiary critique of racial and gender stereotypes where the bass hits as hard as the message.
