“Ogguere” from Havana will be perforingm at the legendary El Macambo music venue Dec 3 2010. They are a very exciting band and are considered by many to be one of Cuba’s most important new music groups! They have developed solid Toronto fans after their appearances at Havana Cultura, Gladstone Hotel and other venues.
Ogguere have performed and/or recorded with everyone from The Roots, Common and Green Day to Los Van Van and other Cuban greats! They have even recorded in the same studio as the world famous “Buena Vista Social Club”.
Join Ogguere and their 7-piece band for an amazing night of live Cuban hip-hop/soul, dancing, and experience the “new sound of Havana”!
Ogguere will be joined by the musical force of Jason Palma (from the famous Footprints parties), Afroqbano (from Chi-Town) and Gary d Gish.
This is also a charity event, so all proceeds from the bar will go directly to helping displaced children in Haiti via “Serving Charity”. For more info on Serving Charity please check out: http://www.servingcharity.com/
The El Mocambo, in association with the Serving Charity Foundation, has graciously offered to donate all revenue generated at the bar the night of the Ogguere concert, to an orphanage in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, for orphaned or abandoned Haitian refugee children. It will be an amazing night to hear the new sounds of Havana while supporting a great cause!
