About this Event

We welcome the return of TUMBAITO to Grow. The experimental outfit crosses over ancient Afro-Latin rhythms with modern urban innovations and a dirty harmonic Latin Jazz Funk edge.

Formed in 1994 by Venezuelan percussionist Williams Cumberbatch, Nestor Garcia and Nico Gomez, the band is dedicated to showing the tough urban face of Latin music in the UK.

In the 90s Cumberbatch was an influential figure in the Latin music world in the UK, but he turned away from the Latin world and began collaborating with key players in the West London dance music scene, which included the likes of Goldie, Kaidi Tatham, Phil Asher amongst others. As a result he is well versed in the culture and history of dance music on both sides of the Atlantic, and there is no one better placed to present a Latin inspired reimagining of some of the Detroit anthems we know and love.

Tumbaito has performed in all mayor venues in the UK like: Ronnie Scotts jazz club,Queen Elizabeth hall, Royal Festival hall, Barbican & more.

Entry is £5 After 9pm
