Boom Shakalaka

Boom Shakalaka with host djs Emil & Good Blood will bring afro, balkan, dancehall, latin, soca and all that other sweet tropical bass to mbar terrace.

The Boom shakalaka collective, consisting of Rideon, Hermanni, Good Blood and Emil, is a team of musicians/ djs/ producers with a passion for different club cultures and dance musics from around the world.

The concept was put together because there is a great deal of dance and club music produced outside the Western mainstream, that never gets heard in Helsinki. The group wanted to put up a stage where bouncing club sounds from the Middle East, South and East Asia, the African continent, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America all blend in, creating a global multicultural urban soundscape.

The boom shakalaka team also hosts a biweekly radio show on Basso, focusing on these sounds. Genres and styles you can hear them play include, but is not restricted to; afrobeat, baile funk, bongo flava, coupé decalé, balkan, bhangra, cumbia, dancehall, moombahton, hiplife, kuduro, kizomba, kwaito, reggaeton, soca, tecnobrega, uk funky, and much more...
