New Street Live brings London’s best live musicians to the stage every week. With a different theme every Friday, enjoy a selection of soul, blues, singer songwriters, and acoustics favourites over drinks in the bar.
Join us for the first event in the new April series on Friday 5th April from 6pm – 9pm for a special Latin themed evening with Tonto Malembe Duo
Once described as a Latin-swing-coup-d’état by a guy who was clearly out of his mind, Baldo Verdú y su Tonto Malembe is in fact a Venezuelan London-based association of musicians devoted to bring the good vibes of their homeland to this side of the world.
Established in 2014, the band consists of Manfred Olbrich (guitar), Joel Rojas Arriaga (drums and percussion) and the leader Baldo Verdú (vocals, guitar and percussion), who happens to be a songwriter, guitarist and percussionist with life-long experience among Venezuelan traditional rhythms, as well as in genres as diverse as rock, funk and tropicália. These influences combined with the different musical backgrounds of each member of the group, all agglutinated by the notes of psychedelia, result in a sound that has been well enjoyed by the audiences from small venues to major festivals, such as Latin American Film Festival, Secret Garden Party, Georgie’s Festival, London Remixed Festival, Vagabond Festival and Glastonbury Festival.
Join us every Friday for live music and drinks in the heart of The City!
Please note entry is free all night! For more information on each of the acts please visit the individual events pages in the ‘what’s on’ section.
