Mngwa is an 8-piece experimental Latin band based in Vancouver, but their spirit is rooted in the cumbia of South America. Far removed from a cohesive Latin music scene, Mngwa has created their own singular style, mixing psych rock, dub, hip hop, and surf influences into their afro-latin polyrhythmic pot. After 3 years of blasting unsuspecting Canadian audiences, Mngwa is pushing their northern strain of cumbia ever-further, reaching fans of Latin music worldwide.

With band members from across Europe, Canada and Mexico, Mngwa makes wild new music that jumps many boundaries without ever losing the groove. Following a breakthrough 2015 that included the release of their debut Vancumbia Ambush EP, Canadian festival appearances, and a Mexican tour, Mngwa is preparing to record their full-length debut and broadcast their sound into the distant cosmos.

Compassion Gorilla

Compassion Gorilla has a relentless drive to translate earthy and folkloric sounds into an explosive performance fit for the demands of the modern dancefloor. Their unique brew has been the life of wild dance parties for almost a decade, and while its music defies categorization the band keeps audiences feeling comfortably at home.

DJ Co-Captain

Co-Captain (aka. Dylan Gale) is based on Denman Island, Canada where he wildcrafts forest plants, grows veggies and turns up the bass. As a DJ he is known for getting the crowd bumpin and jumpin with his fertile blend of bass-loaded world beats and funked up percussive grooves. Bringing together a diversity of musical styles, Co-Captain blends a potent mixture of fun as he launches his happy-go-lucky energy onto the dance floor.
