Sun 18th May
Here is one of this year’s most exciting club nights. Featuring DJ Panko, Max and Carlitos, members of legendary Barcelonians Ojos de Brujo, ODB Sessions invite you to a sound system of folky, hip-hop fusion mixed with electronica, slick turntablism, flamenco & Latin-Cuban roots; this is as fresh and potent as someone punching a fresh lettuce into your ears!
Special guest dj for May [ dunkelbunt ] (Vienna) under the auspices of London’s Balkan Fever Festival.
The launch of the night in March ended up in a mesmerising jam session with a parade of London’s best talent getting on stage among which were MC, beatboxer and performance poet Skorpio frontman of DJ Ritu’s Asian Equation in the 90s and collaborator of the Ministry of Dhol and ADF Soundsystem, Sharon Duncan, a talented actress and singer most notably known from Nitin Shawhney’s Eastern Eyes, Michael Mwenso trombonist of preference for the likes of James Brown, Isaac Hayes, Abram Wilson, Jamie Cullum to name a few, ADF’s Sun-j, Diaspora’s Luca Gatti (Gaddafi A Living Myth opera’s co-arranger) and Susana Lang-Lenton a talented singer-songwriter, also a member of Afro-Cuban rockers Brecha, to name a few.
Ojos de Brujo have been selling out venues such as the Barbican and the Roundhouse in London, regularly touring the UK while last summer they rocked main stages at festivals such as Lovebox and Big Chill.
Now, ODB Sessions take their sound to the capital’s clubland, a flamenquillo sound system where you can shake your booty to hot-from-the-studio remixes from breakbeat to rumba, drum & bass bulerias or bhangra-Balkan-hiphop-Latin funk, all those ingredients mixed in the hands of turntable alchemist DJ Panko with the magic of live musicians Max Wright (percussion, beatbox, MC) and Carlitos Sarduy (trumpet, piano, percussion).
This is a de puta madre regular residency at Cargo that will see special guests and lots of interaction on the stage and dance floor! There are simply too many good reasons you can’t miss out on all the fun…
Also appearing Elio D’ Anna Jr + special surprise guests in a distorted-guitar tabla indie beat flamenco explosion! Terra Incognita a collective photo show which explores the ethereal and the fantastic. Curated by Nathalia Ophele.
You can buy tickets from wegottickets or the Cargo shop.
