LIVE MUSIC: Join us for a live performance by Grupo Mono Blanco, alongside a DJ set by Gil Cerezo, of 5 piece-Kinky.
Hear traditional folk melodies interspersed with a contemporary house music repertoire, and get a taste of contemporary Mexico.
Formed in Veracruz in 1977, Grupo Mono Blanco has toured extensively around Mexico and worldwide for over 30 years. They have become one of the country’s most influential bands and are now leading the current revival of ‘son jarocho’, the state’s traditional folk music. Gil Cerezo is a musician and dj whose career spans 15 years. Gil has toured with artists such as De la Soul, the Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse, and his music has appeared in adverts, video games, TV series and movies.
