[ADVERT]Did you know that what is considered (in an international sense) Latino music is actually composed of more musical genres than you can name? Well, when you hear words like cumbia, merengue, reggaeton, salsa, dance hall or mambo - you are listening to different types of musical Latin genres. All of these Latin/Tropical sounds are as different as Pop is different from Rock.

Now imagine all of this musical richness, combined with the sounds that the world listens to now - a complete avant-garde proposal in your own Oxford Street in Sydney.

And on top of all - it's free.

DJ Faby Bolivar

In our very own Sydney, we have DJs and musicians who are making new Latino music, that sounds like nothing you have heard before. This is the future Latino music with the Techno/Electro/Drum&Bass/Trance twist: meet "Radio Malembe". "Radio Malembe" is the living proof that Latino music is changing. Vintage Latin beats, tropical aesthetics, 8bit synths, telenovela loops, hip hop scratching, indigenous laments, 80s showbands, Britney Spears, live guascas (musical instrument), Marilyn Manson, etc.

DJ Diego Lenis
"Radio Malembe" consists of 3 musicians/DJs who are making the new sound of Latino music. However, this music experience is not made just for a Latino audience, this new experience is made for a broad (sophisticated) and universal crowd. There is no race, colour or background: just beats, dance and magic.

Diego Lenis, Carlos Arango and Faby Bolivar, locals but foreigners at the same time, make the party go all night. Together and as individuals, they show talent, creativity and innovation. A high energy show boosted from original and creative mashups/mixes (you would also recognise all time tracks of both Latino and western culture). You know, it is well known that with the Sydney nightlife scene, music choice can be very reductive, very narrowing. Be bold and enjoy new sounds.

DJ Carlos Arango
