"Casabella's music is lively, irrepressible and wildly groovy. It has the spontaneity of Latin American music, the heart of soul music and the uplifting message of reggae".

Fri Apr 16 Cargo, 83 Rivington St, London, EC2A 3AY
Beyond the Borders : Congolese Kasai Masai + Tibetan Yak Attack + Casabella

Gianni Rossi: vocals, guitars

Samantha Grant: vocals, shakers

Michael Lloyd: keyboard

Thierry Deneux: drums, back vocals

Winton Palmer: bass, double bass, guitars, slide guitar,

Jivana Hunt: trumpet;

Derek Ferguson: percussion, shakers

Casabella kicked off the night and set the tone straight away with their catchy song Brazil, soon attracting more spectators in with a vibrant and uplifting set including new material, such as slower-paced Reggae Nights .

Strong and compelling vocal delivery from lead singer Samantha Grant and Gianni Rossi combined with an enthusiastic instrumental execution made Casabella a perfect fit for Beyond The Borders, which aims to "bring people from different musical and cultural backgrounds together though world class live fusion acts".

Casabella demonstrated once again at Cargo their ability to draw people to the dancefloor with their energetic performance – special kudos to percussionist Derek Ferguson - and infectious soundscape of pop, latin funk, Brazilian samba, jazz and reggae to only name a few of their influences, which transports you to carnival season in sunnier climes no matter the time of year.
