GLO Dance kicks off for 2016 with one GLO’s favourite bands TIJUANA CARTEL!!! Bringing their infectious gypsy caravan blend of flamenco guitars and super funky beats. Since playing GLO in the early days TIJUANA CARTEL have shot to national and international fame with their genre defying dance floor sound and mystifying virtuoso guitar playing. It is a super treat to have them back playing for us at GLO, and this is definitely one not to miss!!!
As the corner stone of Australia’s ‘east meets west’ electronic scene, TIJUANA CARTEL have a knack for blending layers of rich, intricate atmospheric soundscapes with laid back rhythms and luscious vocals to form an electronic beats tapestry that will cut through to your very soul.
Simply, there isn’t another band doing what they do. Having spent the last decade mixing in influences that haven’t been fused in the past, their penchant is for Middle Eastern scales, beats that get a floor moving and a general Psychedelic approach in song structure and ethos.
On stage is where TIJUANA CARTEL’s collective musical spirit is really given the chance to run wild. Joined by Sheila Finke on Percussion and Eamon Dilworth on Trumpet, they extensively tour Australia stopping off at all of the major cities regularly, as well as small towns and the most loved festivals including Peats Ridge, Rainbow Serpent, Wave Rock, Splendour In The Grass, Byron Bay Blues and roots, Falls, Shine On, Good Vibrations, Surry Hills Festival and Lane Way amongst others. They also tour across Europe and USA when the stars align.
The line up also features fresh DJ set from Byron shire favourite DJ POB. So be ready to dance every bone in your body.
This GLO also marks the start of new custodianship of the event, with Pip O’Brien taking over managing GLO. This is such exciting news as Pip has a great energy and is all set to keep the amazing music and inspired dance floor continuing strong at Uki Hall.
Chai, Cakes and Herbal Elixir available.
See You On The Dance Floor.
Love Hamilton & Pip
