“The perfect post-Carnival shot. The exuberant cabaret-swing of Rumba da Bodas returns after a series of sell out shows last year. Starting life as a loose collective in the backstreet music bars of Bologna, Italy, they fuse Latin, Ska, Balkan and Swing ideas into an ever-changing musical mix.” – The List UK –
Their musical journey begins as street musicians, traveling around Europe on a battered van with no clear plans and a great desire for adventure. Rumba de Bodas have now become a permanent feature in some of the continent’s most important Live Festivals. Rumba have always pleased the ever growing and more demanding audiences they have played for.
Got together in Bologna in 2008, this talented bunch of young italian musicians has made partying their mission in life. Their frenetic mix of funk, soul and latin travels from disco to ska with a punk, soul and an eclectic approach to composition and arrangements.
