"A bunch of young, hip and cool aficionados producing the slickest and most polished sounds in the city. Fronted by mesmerising vocalists, backed by a burning hot percussion unit and equipped with a tight pop horns train, DIÁSPORA provides the perfect recipe for a fun-filled fiesta night out. A zesty infusion of salsa and jazz influences, fat funky grooves and just about everything else south of the border, DIÁSPORA is the ultimate tribute to Latin music in the UK. Absolutely stunning."
Don't forget to pop down to Matt & Phreds to catch DIÁSPORA, with Alysita and James on vocals, Rorito on sax, Misha Gray on piano, Demetris on bass, and with Dave Simpson, Chris Manis and Jack McCarthy on percussion! Tomorrow (thursday) night from 10pm. FREE entry.
"DIÁSPORA small band brought a fun fiesta feeling to the Festival Hub’s main-stage at the 2010 Manchester Food & Drink Festival. With their colourful interpretations of Latino classics mixed with their energetic, quirky spontaneity and delightful stage presence, DIÁSPORA brought the sunshine out of all who came to attend. The performers really seemed to be enjoying themselves, which naturally fed into the enjoyment of the assembled crowds. This is a band definitely worth keeping an eye on!"
