Matatu Festival of Stories 2017 concludes with an equatorial dance party! Take the sultry vibe of the Latin American Tropics, combine with the rhythm of India ("Taal") and stir into Tropitaal - a Desi Latino Soundclash where the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America go head to head in an all-night dance-off of epic proportions.
Resident DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid combine their deep passions and deep crates from across the spectrum of Latin, Indian and Caribbean vibes. (We are not talking Salsa - but Reggaeton, Moombahton, Digital Cumbia, 3Ball Guarachero, Dembow and more.)
