About this event
Kizamba is Cornwall’s premier Latin & Afro-Caribbean good vibes band, formed in the summer of 2021 by six talented musicians living in West Cornwall who came together through a mutual love of Afro-Caribbean beats and sounds. The music takes you on a musical journey through South and Central America, the Caribbean islands and up into the Latin neighbourhoods of North America, where Latin rhythms met jazz and soul.
Their setlist is an intoxicating mixture of high-energy Afro-Cuban salsa, Colombian cumbia, Latin jazz, boogaloo, bachata, Brazilian samba, bossa nova, famous reggae, calypso and soca tunes that will get everyone singing along. Their music is pure tropical sunshine and guaranteed to get people on the dancefloor – smiling and dancing! After a busy year on the Cornish gig circuit, they have cultivated a loyal following in the salsa community and have drawn large crowds of music lovers at festivals like Golowan, Tropical Pressure and Rock Oyster.

People are invited to dance the night away while raising funds to create the community-run health and wellbeing centre on the site of the former Edward Hain Memorial Hospital in St Ives. It’s part of the final phase of the tremendous community campaign to purchase the building and raise funds to kit out and start activities on site. Angela Walker, the new Chair of the Friends of Edward Hain says, “Thanks to the continuing years of support for the hospital, we are now waiting for the final legal steps in the acquisition of the site from NHS Property Services. The former hospital will be renamed the Edward Hain Centre. This will be a separate charity operating the building. It’s thanks to the generosity of supporters such as Kizamba that we are in this position. I’m looking forward to the evening very much indeed. I would also like to thank St Ives Rugby Club for allowing us to use their venue free of charge.” Tickets are £12 on the door or £10 (plus the booking fee) in advance from Ticketsource.
