|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until 07/09/2019

Hot hot hot! Feel the vibes of samba, bossa nova, and salsa as WAYJO turns the heat up with Afro-Cuban inspired jazz across two sensational nights.

From Dizzy Gillespie’s Manteca, a fan favourite at WAYJO gigs, to music by band leaders and percussionists extraordinaire like Tito Puente, the Afro-Cuban Allstars and Buena Vista Social Club, you will want to move your booty all night.

Featuring guest artists Steve Richter and Iain Robbie, leading a percussion explosion, and Adolfo Chavez on vocals, these gigs are going to be party central.

Guest artists for The Afro-Cuban Explosion appear thanks to funding provided by the Minderoo Foundation
