This gig was a fundraiser for Solomon Berrio-Allen, Rafael’s son. (Rafael was the guest singer on Tsunami). He has been offered one of 50 places at P.A.R.T.S. dance school in Belgium out of over 1000 auditions. Now he just needs to raise the funds to go. We supported on Sunday night by joining Rafael’s bands Pollito Boogaloo and Son Pikkante to play a hot Afro-Latin night on a hot Brighton summer heat-wave and by offering £2 from every CD sale towards his pledge. If you’d like to support, head on over to his PARTS pledge page on Indiegogo to donate.
Marisa Findlay has done an excellent video montage and photos of the evening to the backing of Jollof Rice. This is her second venture into videography and editing. Better than not bad, I say! This song went down!
Here’s a short live clip from Tsunami third section on last Sunday.
