CAPTAIN ACCIDENT + IMMIGRANT SWING + TARANTULA + DJ CHRIS TOFU
06 / December / 2018GET TICKETS
CLUB DADA and CONTINENTAL DRIFTS present: CAPTAIN ACCIDENT is a reggae/ska/soul artist who creates a unique blend of soulful lovers rock, roots reggae, ska, dub and rocksteady at his home studio in Cardiff. This sound is then brought to life on stage with the help of a collective of musicians known as “The Disasters” although in reality, they are far from disasters! The energetic live show is guaranteed to get people up and dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy companions hit the stage.
THE IMMIGRANT SWING PROJECT began in the cobbled paths of Bristol Town’s King Street in Autumn of 2012 bringing together musicians from around the world. The rhythm orientated trio which emerged consisted of a guitar (Raphael/France,Sicily), tuba (Tomaso/ Sardegna), vocals and harmonica (Mao/Colombia). The original impulse seemed to merge the rhythms of Jazz Manouche – perfectly complemented by the balkanic sounds of the tuba – with a Hip-hop orientated vocal style, which would form the basis from which the project has evolved.
TARANTULA are a five-piece bringing the typical Mediterranean flavour to the British music scene.
Sharing their varied musical influences, you’ll hear authentic, groovy tambourine rhythms and flute-playing that is reminiscent of the sea, tradition, legend and mysticism belonging to “brown skin people “ of the Mediterranean lands.A perfect communion of different cultures mixed with “Taranta“, the traditional music of Salento. Tarantula bites her victims and steals their souls, making them dance without rest.
