BOOGALOO en ORBIT is a unique and entertaining 6-piece band from Victoria BC. They have crafted a new style based on 60’s New York Latin Boogaloo, Twist, Rumba, Cuban Son Montuno and Mexican Cumbia.
Their original compositions are funny, colorful, and at times profound. They describe life between languages and cultures.
They will be doing some covers by the likes of Esquivel, Willie Bobo, Wilfrido Vargas, Beny Moré, Papo Luca, Rafael Cortijo.
