La Batalla de Puebla ‘El Rey’ style this coronation weekend with an evening of fine Mexican and Latin party sounds headlined by the powerful Son Jarocho group, Chapulines, mixing traditional Mexican music with Caribbean and rumba grooves.
The band was formed in Mexico at the shore of the beautiful lagoon of Bacalar after a musical encounter between singer and Jarana player Beto Robledo Zaragoza and violinist Graciela Zaera Moraña. Plus special guest DJs – Sabor A Mi (Rinse FM) whose Mexican French roots inspire her eclectic pan-Latin musical journey from Salsa and Cumbia to Afro-house and Dembow and Mexican globetrotter Gypsy Box who brings his tried and tested dancefloor formula of Cumbia and global sounds.
Mexican street food (authentic tacos) will be served by El Nopalito + Mexican market featuring: Sweet Nibble’s pan dulce, MK Tianguis, Mexhands and OlinCasaMexicana with authentic arts, crafts and clothing.
