"defining our culture rather than having it dictated to us"
- Christian Mártir (Rice & Beans Sound System)
Resident/Founder, Christian, will play selections from his vinyl collection grounded in the sounds of the Afro-Caribbean and its diaspora, especially from his native Puerto Rico and the Nuyorican sounds of the 1960s-70s. This era saw the birth of Fania Records, who are sponsors and supporters of the night.
We are celebrating our musical and cultural heritage but also challenging
ourselves to push it forward. In a time where music has become disposable,
we aim at returning to a time when music was timeless and classic.
In a sense we are going back in order to move forward.
We invite you to join us on our journey.
We ask of you and need from you your energy and your vision.
Pura candela mi gente!
Christian Martir (Rice N Beans Sounds)
