21 April : Roberto Pla Ensemble – 25th anniversary

 

Special 25th anniversary show for Roberto Pla, the indisputable guvnor of Latin Music in the UK. Roberto formed his first beat combo in London a quarter of a century ago and tonight, aided by a stellar big band, he is going to party like its 1987.  
Born in Barranquilla, Colombia, Roberto studied music at the National University of Bogota, going on to tour Latin America and the States with Orquesta Lucho Bermudez, after session work in New York, he moved to London and the rest is our shared history of Latin Music in the capital from Sonido de Londres to Joe Strummer. A special show for the dancers on one of London’s great ballroom floors.
