Transcontinental Vibrations presents SOL NATION (Cooked Up Beats & Spicy Rhythms) and Better Than The Wizards (Funky Jazz) on Saturday the 5th of November. Doors open at: 7:30pm
Take a large melting pot, fill half way with Reggae, add a dash of East Timorese folk song, a punch of Cuban Salsa, a sprinkle of Latin dance, 3 parts Afro-Beat, 2 parts tropical island rhythm, a sprinkle of Brazilian Samba, fill with funk and stir!
SOL NATION is the product of Melbourne's communal musical scene - at its heart lies the reggae experience of Paulo Almeida (The Dili Allstars), the rock charisma of Colin Badger (Painters and Dockers), and the fiery ardor of Indigenous songstress Deline Briscoe (The Black Arm Band).
INFECTIOUS rhythm, worldly lyrics and impassioned musicianship are just the beginning for any Sol Nation performance. From Dili to Cairns, Lisbon to Rio, Sol Nation draws upon a wealth of international musical culture to bring you a melting pot of Reggae, Samba, Funk, Salsa, East Timorese folk and African dance music.
