Names You Can Trust presents: Viaje al Centro del Ritmo

Saturday, December 15, 21:00 – 3:00, €5

Names You Can Trust presents the debut release from Lola’s Dice: Viaje al Centro del Ritmo. An ensemble born and battle-tested by years of punk and hard rock before fusing into its current form, a consolidated tropical-rock rhythm machine. Fueled in equal parts by the group’s South American roots in Venezuela and Chile, and the creative freedom of their long-time home in Amsterdam, the band’s evolution has resulted in music that is a pure body-moving delight — a fuzzy blend of guitars, synths and musical sabor that is very much rooted in the percussive sounds of Latin America, yet still comfortable in its punk-ethos vandalization of tradition and status quo. Helping to guide the band in this first studio recording is the talented touch of percussion maestro and engineering wiz Alex Figueira (Fumaça Preta, Conjunto Papa Upa) at his Barracão Sound studio in Amsterdam. The resulting 4-track EP is a perfect match of genre-defying psychedelic madness and Caribbean cool.


The night will seasoned with heavy sabrosura tunes to destroy the dance floor, with the help of hypnotic grooves coming from DJ Rengo Estar and Duo Penossi
