Empresarios and Alma Tropicalia

Funk/soul
Please note: This event has already occurred.
The D.C. music scene continues to mine the tropical sounds of the African, Latin and Caribbean diasporas, and the results are solid releases, great shows and sweaty dance parties. DJs and musicians have been joining the fun, and with Empresarios, those two worlds come together with everything from Latin disco funk to boogaloo. Joining them at the Hamilton are Alma Tropicalia, an all-star group of musicians from several working bands around town who explore '60s Brazilian tropicalia, mixing psychedelic pop with rock, samba and forro.
