Kwé, Kuei, Hi!!!
Thursday April 4th starting at 10h00 pm
Café-bar l’Escalier; 552, Saint-Catherine East Street
This Thursday, April 4th, we present you Tropico Bravo!
Tropico Bravo, which was founded in 2014, now has nine members, all from different Latin American countries. Tropico Bravo explores rhythms such as cumbia, reggae and ska with rap and hip-hop tendencies. Since its creation, the band has performed in several festivals including Les Week-Ends du monde, Le Festival des Percussions, and Les Sily d'Or in Montreal, Le Shazam Fest in Sherbrooke, La Soirée des Brasseurs in Shawinigan and has not finished making the Quebec scene dance!
But Tropico Bravo does not forget the roots of these ancestors "We believe that the Aboriginal side reflects the culture of a people and it shows us what we must never forget or put aside... our roots, our customs, where we come from and where we are going. »
Tropico Bravo arrives on stage like a tropical hurricane, carrying with it all those who are ready and willing to submerge themselves in it. The show moves and transports the audience to the sunny Latin American beaches. Wherever it may be, its very energetic and original repertoire will make everyone who gets carried away dance!
For the entertainment of the evening we will have the pleasure to receive Anna-Khesic Khway Harper!
