Africanizing and groovalizin' nightlife with global grooves from the Urb'n'Jungle: afrobeat, ethiogrooves, Afro-Latin & Afro-Brazilian, Lusafrican, soukouss, arabesque, reggae/dub/dancehall and hip-hop with an ethnic/regional flavor.
A mocambo or quilombo was a refuge in the forest for liberated slaves in colonial Brazil. My Mukambo is the asylum for those who want to escape from the pop/rock/electro dictatorship, a place where you can dance to grooves from all around the world.
Come & join Mukambistan, the People's Republik of Groove!
