Is a new year and we decide to make some change !
A new venue is ready for Off Beat Festival.
We will be at Thiruvambadi, a area with multifunctional spaces and a beautiful park with green grass surrounded by coconut trees thats is looking to the Arabian Sea.
Perfect spot, where all our word will find is space !
From early afternoon till late night , workshops , flea market , yoga classes, street food stall, exhibition and live artist performance will go along the music of Dj and lives band.
On the main stage onside of our Djs, we are happy to bring back to Varkala the OORALI
a band that is always been present at off beat festival during this 4 years and we can’t stop calling here.
Their show is a ”must see” live act, a creative mix of music, theatre, visuals, art and song.
They sing in Spanish, Malayalam and English.
The rhythm section belongs to the world.
The cajon and wombo drum thumps out the essence of Latin America, the Djembe resonates with the vibrations of Africa, the darbouka rings out the winds of the Mediterranean deserts.
Thoughtful lyrics are supported with bass and guitar, and the vocals are sung out with a complete sense of pride and passion.
