It’s long been said that Cubans sing when they speak, dance when they walk, and woo with a love song.

So it should be of little surprise that The Cuban Brothers’ peerless funk soul review blends sexy, SOULFUL MUSIC, with jaw-dropping B-BOY ACTION and RIOTOUS COMEDY.

From humble beginnings, Miguel Mantovani, Young Dominico and Kengo San have built Los Hermanos Cubanos – The Cuban Brothers – into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe.

The Brothers have recently been extending their family, with Shaka Loves You becoming honorary members and touring together.

This will be kick ass. And will sell out. Don’t hang about for tickets.

They played here at Hogmanay, they played our re-opening after our mega flood, they played our first gig back after Panny Dee. And they’ve torn the roof off here a good few other times.

Since then they’ve released an album, toured Australia, sold out Celtic Connections and are about to take over the USA. The Langan Band are back. Don’t miss it.

You can believe our blurb, or have a look at the boys in action…

Celebrating the longest day, with a solid dose of dancing. It’s been a long time in the making and a bit of a musical bucket list moment for team OBI, but finally we welcome SambaYaBamba to rock your world. Here’s what they say…..

Pure, organic, dance music – powerful and irresistible. SambaYaBamba is a musical tour-de-force hailing from the sundrenched streets of tropical Glasgow. A 30-odd-piece drumming bateria and brass section rooted in the musical traditions of the Brazilian carnaval yet at the same time, very much tailored to a the Glasgow crowd. They are equally at home on a huge stage, in a street parade or in a basement club. Their set twists and turns from full scale samba to drum and bass and beyond with a tightness and commitment to the rhythm that is a joy to behold. Local legends and loved across the samba scene.

And who better to jump on the DJ float for this carnival, but Karawane. DJ / producer / promotoer of good music and good causes, Afrobeat – salsa – cumbia – world edits – proper party music dug from the crates of the globe.

Your host OC will also play spin a few numbers, in celebration of a 15th summer at the helm of this wonderful river side oasis.

Food trucks, outside bar – fun fun fun – sun sun sun.

Kids welcome, dogs on leads, leave no trace, be nice, good vibes only.
