WARA: Latin Funk / Cuban Salsa / Hip Hop / Rumba / Jazz. “Wara are young musical revolutionaries who simply ignore convention… they represent the true sound of contemporary Latin London in the 21st century." Lubi Jovanovic (UK Latin DJ/Promoter). Wara's contagious lyrics, exceptional musicianship, red hot energy and wild live shows bring you an urgent voice that demands to be heard. Effortlessly combining Cuba's most danceable rhythms and styles Timba, Salsa, Cha-Cha-Cha, Rumba with contemporary urban elements including Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Jazz. The London-based nine-piece band are a hot melting pot of identities with backgrounds that span the world map: Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Ghana, Congo, Spain and the UK. Wara formed in 2009 and soon found that they were doing what no one else was: namely portraying what Latin Americans face when moving to UK, using the music to bend stereotypes, genres and combine stories. “We reinterpret what has already been done [in Cuban music] so it applies to young people living here in the UK in 2013,” says Latina powerhouse Eliane Correa, MD and keyboard player. The rest of the line-up includes Congolese-Argentinean lead vocalist Juanita Euka (niece of legendary Congolese musician Franco). SUITABLE: FOR ALL
