What do you do when you’ve created one of the most incredible Latin dance parties in New York City? You create another one. That’s exactly what DJ Geko Jones of Que Bajo is doing with his new party, Africa Latina, at the Brooklyn Taphouse. “I’ve been playing more and more African sounds at Que Bajo, and I realized that I’ve collected enough to do a solid night out here,” he says. Jones enlisted the help of longtime friend Chief Boima, a Sierra Leonean-American electronic musician and DJ, to be his partner in crime on the decks. The two shell out Azonto, Afrobeats, Kwaito, Kizomba, Kuduro, hip-hop, Funana, Semba, and much more. Looking forward to getting on the dance floor, guys!
