In little time London based artist Tash LC has established herself as an assured DJ, host and presenter across both radio and club mediums.

Influenced by the fieriest of contemporary Havana's music, Wara have roared their way through the ranks of the UK’s Latin music scene. With backgrounds spanning from Cuba to the Congo and Venezuela to Chile, the band has become of London’s most resonating urban soundclashes. Their music plays deep into the urban Afro-Caribbean scene; dembow darts though bass-heavy hip-hop and reggaeton intertwines with the bounce of the mambo. Their lyrics, astute and provocative, do not hesitate to bend genres and twist stereotypes. Yet, remaining humorous when faced with even the most critical of dialogue, WARA are a band with a future as colourful and diverse as its past.
