At last, we’re back!
Calle Ocho Leeds and Kizomba Manchester are proud to announce the return of their big Luso-Brasil party at The Faversham Leeds on Saturday 29th June.
Welcome to LUSOFONICA II
After last summer’s successful event, we planned to do more Lusofonica events but both promoters and all our DJs were so busy with other events/DJ bookings, we never made it happen. Now, finally in summer 2019, we’ve found the time and space to put together another great Luso-Brasil party at the home of Calle Ocho Leeds – The Faversham – with a great northern all-stars special and with support from our friends at JN Eventos.
Just a quick explanation of the name Lusofonica.
Lusophone (or Lusofone) is the term used to describe the people and countries across the world who speak Portuguese. In our case, we celebrate the music and dance from the African Lusophone countries (Angola, Mozambique, Cabo Verde, São Tomé & Principe, Guinea-Bissau) plus the South American giant Brazil and of course, Portugal. So Lusofonica II celebrates the music and dance of Lusofone countries worldwide.
Here’s the line-up.
ROOM ONE : KIZOMBA/TARRAXINHA/SEMBA/GHETTO ZOUK/RETRO ZOUK (8.30pm classes, party 10.30pm-4.30am)
