The Cuban Jam

Immerse yourself in Havana nightlife with a live Cuban band and DJs playing hot beats

Every week Havana’s nightlife comes to the Forge in Camden to give you a little taste of a Latin party. Come and party with London’s Cuban community and their friends, try your hand (or feet) at salsa and enjoy live music from the city’s best Cuban musicians (and others that have flown in especially to play). What makes The Cuban Jam so unique is that you, the audience, takes part. Soon you’ll start seeing familiar faces and become part of the “Cuban Family.” These aren’t dance partners or musicians to listen to for one night, rather a celebration of many to come if you choose. The laid-back, casual atmosphere makes it easy to just immerse yourself in the closest alternative to actually being on the streets of Havana. Every week a different, fluid group of musicians get together on stage, keeping the music authentic yet with spice and variety. You'll also enjoy the latin beats provided by resident DJ Javier “La Maquina” before and after the live band. Lineups: - Fri 03 June: Los Tuneros - Fri 10 June: Son 4 - Fri 24 June: Cuban Jam All Stars Get in free before 8, and learn a bit of salsa with the weekly salsa class. Don’t worry if you’ve never salsa’d before, there is a whole community of people here that will happily swing and twirl (with) you. And even if you don’t know the moves later, your feet and hips will get the idea when the music starts. Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
