LOS GAITEROS DE SAN JACINTO
In partnership with the Afro-Latino Festival of New York, this month’s Que Bajo features one of the most important Colombian acts of all time, Los Gaiteros De San Jacinto.
Formed in the 1940’s Los Gaiteros are a multi-generational band that has passed down the Gaita tradition and toured internationally for over 7 decades. Often featured in Uproot Andy remixes at Que Bajo, some of you might have seen Los Gaiteros along with Geko Jones some years ago and remember that these guys drink guaro straight out the bota and they party like rockstars.
Supporting that night is Boston’s reina de la rumba RIOBAMBA_dj who has become one of the most important women in latin club music. Whether as an event promoter, resident deejay at both Pico Picante and Perreo at Webster Hall, her time as editor at various media outlets, she has made a name for herself as one of the chicas to watch in latin nightlife.
Residente DJ’s Geko Jones and Uproot Andy are pretty much the happiest dudes on earth that this our next line up.
