Article from The Miami New Times;
Up until a few months ago, Miami felt empty.
The shortage of Afro-Caribbean rhythms in a city built by Afro-Caribbean immigrants was downright shameful. We had become the Big Mango tree without roots. But then Tumbao happened, and Afro-Caribbean beats found a permanent home at the intersection of I-95 and Calle Ocho.
"My partner Danny and I are part Cuban, and we wanted to celebrate our heritage," says Roxanne Scalia, owner of PAX New Times' 2012 pick for Best Venue For Local Acts. "Hence Noches Tumbao." With help from Fabrika CEO and co-founder Toto Gonzalez, Scalia turned Friday nights at PAX into a who's who of roots rhythm.
However, January 25's installment of Tumbao
at PAX belongs to Los Herederos, a group Scalia describes as "authentic Guaguanco and rumba."
We simply call it awesome.
Join us this friday for a real treat Los herederos a true Yoruba exhibition of afro cuban drumming and Son Lokos which take you the the streets of Cuba itself with their sounds.
Miami based via Caracas Venezuela, DJ Vixen is a world music disc jockey. her sounds take to a world apart.
