After eight years in Cali, Colombia, working as a DJ, promoter and music journalist, trumpeter Etienne Sevet returned home to Lyon, France to form the Afro Caribbean band The Bongo Hop. The rich, layered quality of their music is the result of many influences including Sevet’s time in Cali, the African rhythms he encountered at home among France's African immigrant diaspora, and his many musical adventures abroad. After touring in France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Tanzania, and Cape Verde, The Bongo Hop make their NYC debut in November.
