Tropidelica Part 2 at the Waldorf this Friday 27 with Uproot Andy

25 May 2011 No Comment

A TROPICAL, LATIN-INFLUENCED MULTI-ROOM PARTY CABARET -

Monthly Latin cabaret Party brings acclaimed Canadian DJ based in NY

For the 2nd edition of TROPIDELICA – Waldorf´s monthly Tropical Cabaret they are presenting a multi-room party with dancers+performers and a guest DJ from Brooklyn, NY – UPROOT ANDY

!!! UPROOT ANDY !!!!

“When Uproot Andy rolls out the names of rhythms, he savors them deliberately, like a hoodoo priest chews on a root: kuduro, bullerengue, cumbia. And like a root doctor, it’s from the mixing of these ethnically diverse musical styles that Andy Gillis draws power. It’s a hoodoo he’s practiced as a DJ, as co-founder of New York City’s digi-global party Que Bajo?!, and as a producer for the ZZK and Bersa Discos labels. And now, along with Que Bajo?! cohort Geko Jones, he’s faced the most post-modern of DJ tasks: taking their global sounds to cumbia’s ancestral homeland.” – XLR8
