May’s El Swing features live music from Tropic Peru who were formed in 2018 by Alejandro Reyes, a Peruvian percussionist, who arrived in London in the 90’s and took an interest in salsa dancing, singing and Afro-Cuban percussion.

Tropic Peru plays tropical music, including Cuban Son, Afro-Peruvian, Bachata and Cumbia in a Peruvian style at Salsa clubs and festivals around town. Alejandro also plays with Los Domingos who did the business at our El Swing Christmas Party!
