Habana Dancers / Music by DJ MELAO
Taste the forbidden fruit and come to SOBs 'Havana Nights’, the hottest new series from the founders of Salsa Groove & Bossa Nova Brunch. For years SOBs attendees have been asking for a Saturday night of heat…and the wait is finally over.
Every 2nd Saturday of the month, SOBs is opening its doors after midnight for a sizzling Cuban dance party, in the style of the world-famous Havana clubs like The Tropicana & Diablo TunTun until well into the morning hours. In the vein of these great clubs, the music played will be Timba, the contemporary dance music of Cuba, similar to salsa with a little more heat. The style contains elements of son, mixed with rock, funk & reggae. Additionally Timba is sensual and easy to learn especially with the Habana Dancers showing the steps. Every Havana Night party will feature a live band and the highlight of the series promises to be the music and dance.
La Bolá is one of the top Timba bands in the US and has developed into a powerful force in the Cuban music scene. Drawing from some of the leading Cuban musicians in the tri-state area (as well as some non-Cuban infiltraos), this group emerged out of a deep desire to establish a real Timba-band in the NYC-area and across the US, one which reflected the real sounds of "la calle Cubana". Their approach is to provide an eclectic blend of Cuban music, ranging across a wide spectrum of styles and genres, yet in a refreshingly modern Timba style. La Bolá centers on harmonious, groove-set Timba music, that is not aggressive or confusing, but easy to understand, engaging and more importantly, very danceable.
