Havana 'che at Hotter than July online
Friday 17th & Friday 24th July, 7pm

For its 7th year in 2020, Hotter than July is moving to an online space, celebrating inclusivity and diversity with music, story-telling, and creativity that is accessible to everyone from home! 

Conor Guilfoyle’s Havana ‘che will kick off our online performances on 17th July at 7pm, bringing the high-energy music that says ‘Hotter than July’, from Dublin’s Camden Studios straight into your living room!

As Ireland’s leading exponents of authentic Cuban music, from timba and salsa to rumba and guaguanco, Havana ‘che are a high-octane 10-piece who create pure unadulterated party music, guaranteed to get you grooving. 

Before their performance, Conor chatted with us about Havana ‘che’s history, being bitten by the Latin music bug as a young musician, and how he’s thinking about music in lockdown, for our 'Other Side of the Tracks' Q&A series, which you can now read HERE

Tune in for their second video to liven up your Friday night on 24th July at 7pm.
