Spectra Events is bringing its once lively and popular underground international dance party, The Basement, back to life this month. The new location will be at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain. It’s not listed on their calendar as of yet, but I have consulted a number of reliable sources and can therefore assure you that this event will indeed take place. Dance to the live and DJ Rizzla hosted sounds of West African rhythms, soca, Latin, international house music, and more. There’ll even be live drumming performances to add to the excitement! This is a monthly event, each party featuring a different set of world music artists performing or, as in the case of the dj, spinning a diverse array of genres  from various parts of the globe. The mood of this series of dance events is designed to be very informal and laid back so as to encourage an atmosphere of socialization and familiarity among attendees. For this reason the musicians themselves will often perform as if they are in a jam session together. So, put on your dancing shoes and come on out to the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain and join in on all the fun. Afterall, what a great opportunity this gives one to sample a good portion of all that great local world music talent that’s out there just waiting to be discovered, as different bands will be featured each month.


FYI –  Just thought I’d mention that January 28th is Bob Marley Tribute Night at the Midway Cafe.  Doors are scheduled to open at 8:00 p.m.
