Get on the good foot in Arrecife tomorrow night, as the Brooklyn Funk Essentials mark Manrique’s Centenary..

Playa El Reducto in the island capital of Arrecife plays host to a series of celebratory free musical events this week to mark the 100th anniversary of Cesar Manrique, kicking off at 22.00 on Tuesday 29th April.

The Brooklyn Funk Essentials multicultural mixture of members is reflected in their eclectic blend of musical influences, with Latin, reggae and jazz sounds all making it into the mix alongside more traditional funk flavours.
