*Toronto* We’re kicking off 2017 with another “Back to Back” edition of GUMBO (2 events in 1 night). This time last year we took you from FNLROM at Royal Ontario Museum to Tattoo on Queen West. This year the party starts at 7pm on the ice rink at Harbourfront(25 Queen’s Quay) for a GUMBOfied DJ Skate Night featuring DJ Revy B and at 11pm it moves over to The Vault, a few minutes away, for a Masquerade Jam. Masks are mandatory at the jam until 1am. Style code: Have fun with your outfit. Swanky. Dapper. Daring. Funky. Festive. Whatever floats your boat.
#WeAreGumbo is about connecting the musical dots widely and authentically. February is carnival time from Trinidad to Brazil and it’s also Mardi Gras season in New Orleans where our special guest DJ RQAway calls home. Last time we were in his city for GUMBO 3, he lit up the dancefloor with the energetic hometown sounds of Nola Bounce and Second Line brass band music and now we will give you a taste of New Orleans in Toronto! S-Quire will hold it down with the Soca and Revy B will keep the Afrobeats flowing. A carnivalesque Afro-diasporic journey into sound taking place inside a transformed bank vault? You don’t want to miss!
