MAV and Brunswick Music Festival presents CARIBE CARNAVAL: ¡PURO SABOR! An explosion of colour, music, and Caribbean culture.
CARIBE CARNAVAL channels the energy of Barranquilla’s vibrant carnival celebrations, with picótero (DJs): General Feelings, MORDISCO (COL), La Foxy Fuzz (Sydney/COL), and Randy Castilla (Perú), plus guest Carlo Xavier.
Also appearing live is MC Kaimán Jiménez (Barranquilla/COL), dance-crew Selva y Tambó (COL), Afro-Colombian band La Descarga and the awe-inspiring Snuff Puppets.
All this, powered by El Gran Mono, the first picó sound system built outside the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
CARIBE CARNAVAL offers a unique alternative to the summer Latin festivals held across Melbourne, merging both the rich history of the Colombian picó sound system culture with the energy of one of the country’s most important folkloric celebrations.
Do not miss this true taste of the Caribbean.
El Gran Mono, is Melbourne’s own “Golden-era” style picó, painted by the great Colombian sound system artist William “El Maestro” Gutierrez.
Performances powered by El Gran Mono will be interwoven with dance and theatrical elements, creating a one-of-a-kind cohesive show, never before seen in Melbourne.
