La Rumba Buena One Year Anniversary! With Dj Bongohead says
¡La Rumba ya va a cumplir un año! Cuando empezamos, pensábamos que habría una Rumba cada tres meses (si tuviéramos suerte) y solo lo hicimos porque queríamos escuchar salsa dura en la ciudad. Jamás esperábamos tener una fiesta así, tan lleno de amor, con tanta gente linda bailando, sudando, y perdiéndose bajo de la influencia de esa música tan BUENA. A todas las personas que hemos conocido (o que simplemente han venido) – gracias de nuestra parte. Y ahora…

To celebrate our 1-year anniversary we are flying up a very special guest from the US, DJ Bongohead.

DJ Bongohead has been playing Latin music for more than two decades in venues large and small all across the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Spain. He has played at private parties for Fania Records, the Lincoln Center’s David Rubinstein Atrium, and Fez in NYC. He has guest DJed with DJ Turmix's Boogaloo Party at Nublu in Manhattan and has opened for old-school salsa greats like Tipica ’73, Orquesta Típica Novel, The Mambo Legends Orchestra, and Orquesta Broadway, as well as contemporary salsa bands like Bio Ritmo, Grupo Fantasma, La Excelecia/Orquesta Salsa Con Conciencia, Orquesta El Macabeo, Los Hacheros, Ola Fresca and more. This is Bongohead's first time playing Toronto and he will be bringing along his famous collection of rare and dance floor friendly salsa and tropical vinyl bangers!

La Rumba Buena is a night dedicated to classic Latin sounds inspired by the salsatecas in Cali, Havana, and New York. No frills, pure vibes, and a non-stop dance floor open to anyone who catches the rhythm.

La Rumba Buena just means a great party and ‘Rumber@s’ are people who love to dance. Expect to hear Salsa, Boogaloo, Cumbia, Guaguanco, Son, Rumba, Descargas, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Bomba, and Plena from the resident DJs. With a stack of vinyl collected over a decade from across the Americas, DJs Blancon and Drumspeak play out the sounds from the Latin Diaspora and bring La Rumba Buena to Toronto.

There will also be live percussion to inspire all of you to connect with your inner rumber@!

This is all going down at the Yauca’s Lounge on Dovercourt, just north of Bloor.

Cover is $10 all night long.

*We regret that Yauca's Lounge is not a fully accessible venue.
