Party like you're in Caribbean Colombia
Along the Caribbean coast of Colombia, huge parties throb to lively music tracks. Colourful lights flash, as crowds come together in a love of music. These parties are known as verbenas, and feature huge colourful speakers at their centre, called Picós - huge, individually decorated speaker boxes. El Gran Mono, or "The Great Ape", has been constructed right here in Melbourne, the first authentic Picó sound system to be built outside of Colombia.

Whitehart Bar is holding a party to celebrate the launch of El Gran Mono, and you're all invited! Come along from 2pm on Saturday 22nd December and be the first to experience this new central hub for Colombian and Afro-Caribbean music. Free entry.
