World Music sampler - part 4

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 26 February 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Today we wrap up our sampler of music acts on the main stage at the Multicultural Festival. So far, we have sampled Reggae and Afrobeat. We now close with some fiery Latin sounds. From a group of musicians who hail from Bondi Beach!

Here, you see Oscar Jimenez. He’s the real Colombian-born deal who fronts Watussi – a band that rates itself as “1000% guapo”.
In this shot, I catch Oscar in a Jimi Hendrix moment!

I will soon run a series on one of the acts seen in our sampler. Watch out for more of the Public Opinion Afro Orchestra.

And still to come is a showcase on a Latin outfit we have not yet sampled – hot!
