ABOUT

This outrageous local phenomenon is a THIRTY-member groove
orchestra, playing carnival music of the world on stages and
streets around B.C. since 1997, led by Marcos X (formerly of 'Ngoma'), vocalist Dan Vie and local legend Ross Barrett. Our stage show? A wild hybrid of funk to punk, samba, calypso, jazz originals, even medieval dances - with a massive horn section backed by driving rhythms from drums and bass.

We play festivals, clubs, dance parties and street parades year-round - the 1st Monday of every month catch our masquerade dance party at EL COCAL, 1037 Commercial Drive.
