AfroTaino presents Bongo District @ The Oval

  • The Oval 2451 Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia, PA, 19130 United States (map)

AfroTaino presents Bongo District- performing live The Oval , on the HEAR Block of the Parkway (in front of the Rodin Museum). The origins of the Bongo District date back to 2016, when Dros (Guitar / Vocals) arrived to North America to pursue new challenges in his already extensive musical career through out Central and South America (Adhesivo, Los Furios, etc). Teaming up with his now-bandmates to perform throughout D.C.’s vibrant downtown music scene, the band had developed its own personal style of reggae funk, ska, and Latin music; and the Bongo District was born. They recently closed out a mini-tour supporting Latin Grammy winners/legendary Venezuelan ska band @desordenpublico, and definitely left their mark on the audiences. There will be LOTS of energy for this show, so bring your friends and get ready to skank, pogo, rockaway, jump & prance under Philly’s summer sky. #afrotainosummer2019
