What we're about

A moving but never ending tropical vinyl nostalgic dancefloor party dedicated to the rare and normally unheard rhythms of Africa, Latin America, India, Caribbean, Brazilian, and the Arab variety. Touching upon the genres and dances listed below we get together and try our very best to dance to many different rhythms of each others respective homelands. We are looking for members who love dancing and learning about obscure music that may have not achieved popularity to due to a myriad of adverse circumstances. Join us if your interested in being exposed to sounds you might not hear otherwise outside of the country of origin. Expect the unexpected: Hybrid transactions, unlikely collaborations / combinations, moods in a minor key, blood, sweat, and tears all wrapped up in its aural form strictly for your educational and spiritual enrichment. We hope to see you there - Ram

Below is a list music we touch upon. Many of these genres have never seen the light of day since their creation.
