We’re excited to have Sacha Levin back as our guest percussionist at Electropical on Saturday, June 14.

Sacha currently performs, records, and teaches with some of Vancouver’s top musicians. Skilled in African and Latin percussion, she has performed and toured throughout B.C. and the rest of Canada. She last appeared at Electropical in November.

If you haven’t seen Sacha in action before, you’re in for a treat. Don’t miss out.

She’ll accompany us as we spin our signature mix of African rhythms, Arabian waves, Brazilian beats, Caribbean sounds, and Balkan bangers.

New and classic tracks this month from Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Spain.

DJ Michael Laycock’s new salsa mix on Mixcloud

I’ve been meaning to put together a salsa mix for a while now. After all, salsa always gets people onto the dance floor at Electropical.

Of course, being an Electropical mix, these are tracks that give salsa a healthy, playful, global kick in the ass. A few are from Cuba, Puerto Rico and Colombia, but the rest hail from Senegal, Turkey, India, France, and beyond.

Enjoy, and see you Saturday, May 17 when Electropical returns to the Backstage Lounge!
