With these nine musicians playing a tight fusion of Cuban timba and salsa with soul, funk, Afro-Cuban grooves, Latin rhythms and dubstep, the dancing never stops.
Wara blends a bit of Havana and a bit of Shoreditch to take the Latin sound somewhere completely new – somewhere in which contagious, in-your-face vocals are layered with irresistable dance rhythms and laced with humour. The group’s debut EP Somewhereland was released last year; pulsing with musical energy, it’s the sound of modern London in all its global glory, a sound that has already seduced audiences at Glastonbury, The Big Chill Festival and the Barbican’s Blaze Festival.
