Summer solstice party, with SAMBAYABAMBA and KARAWANE

When is this event?

  1. 22nd June 2024

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.

(then hang around for Sunday night, as Scotland take on Hungary in our potential Euro decider)
