Pineapple Republic is our Bi Monthly late night Tropical Pachanga, in your favourite below sea level den, Tatler. The last one was heaving. Pineapples were caressed, people got low and selectors ran the dance with deep Latin and Caribbean heat.
Expect more of the same with your local heros Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Alongside The Colombian connection Sr. Bolivar and Tropicante, plus our special guest Huwston.
And to get it all started the night will feature dance performances from the 101 DOLL SQUADRON! SQUAADDDDD!
It’s only 5 bones all night long. BYO Pineapples and tropical attire, and palm tree installations
Earlier in the year I had the chance to venture to the amazing country that is Colombia. Due to our shoestring budget we decided to roll through both Cali and Medellínkind of briefly in the pursuit of both sun and coastal vibes in the north. So after a few overnight buses, which by the way were totally safe and free from any Guerrilla hijackings, we eventually made it to our final destination and a place i am 100% coming back to, the Caribbean Coastline in particular Santa Marta and Cartagena de Indias. Amazing cities, warm and friendly locals, white sand beaches, palm tress, turquoise water and plenty of fresh fish and cheap beers made bunking down in shitty hostels and enjoying a balanced diet of tuna and rice for 4 weeks all worthwhile.
The podcast is rooted in the tropical ritmos originating from the Carribbean coastline of Colombia. Some classic Cumbia, Palenque, and Salsa, with bits of hip hop and digital cumbia from some newer groups making moves throughout Colombia and Latin America . This is by no means anything in depth, just some tunes of Colombian origin i stumbled across during my travels and thought fitting to share. Saludos, Mike Who
