For my Music Monday today: Atlantico is one of the popular Southampton-based bands that I follow. They get everyone up dancing and sometimes employ a salsa dance instructor for a half-hour pre-gig lesson. Colombians in England who miss their traditional Cumbias take the effort to make the journey here just to be able to dance and listen to them. My favourite number is Dance Macabre. Here they performing Luz de Cumbia at a local Mexican restaurant called La Baronia in the Portswood neighbourhood.
Their next events in Southampton, UK in 2016 are on:
August 12th at The Notes Cafe, SO14 1JX
November 19th at Talking Heads SO15 2BN.
