After a 2 month summer break Mambista returns on Friday October 6th with a live session from Jazz Carib and their uniquely rootical take on the musical sweet spot where Reggae, Ska, and Jazz get jiggy. Their collective CV includes live and studio sessions with Aswad, Jazz Jamaica, The Rolling Stones, Jazz Warriors, Ska Cubano, The Beatles, The Mighty Diamonds, Janet Kay, Georgie Fame, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, Jools Holland, PJ Harvey – and everyone in between!
You may know them from their legendary Thursday night sessions at the Effra where they’ve been packing them in for 20 years and counting, and it’s clear that it’s the love of playing live that has held the whole thing together for so long. Hosting a band with their pedigree and sheer musicality is always a privilege. Not to be missed.
The boys are back in town!!!
The evening begins at 7 with our all-comers Salsa Dance Class led by Luis
