Da Lata Live
Saturday, September 1 @ 6:00 pm - 1:00 am
The Printworks are excited to announce the live performance of Afro-Brazilian dance band …. DA LATA!
Da Lata (meaning “from the tin” in Portuguese) are a British group formed in 1994 by Chris Franck and Patrick Forge. They combine Afro-Brazilian influences with other strands from the melting pot of their native London. Franck and Forge previously worked together with the Brighton-based group Batu before setting up Da Lata as a more studio based project. Franck is the main creative force as songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, whereas Forge, better known as a DJ and broadcaster, is credited as co-producer. They made three albums for Palm Pictures: Songs from the Tin(2000) and Serious (2003) and a collection of their remix work for other artists, Remixes which featured their interpretations of songs by Femi Kuti, Luciano, Bebel Gilberto and Sly and Robbie, among others. After a hiatus of several years, the pair started work on a new album in 2011. It was scheduled for release in early 2013.
