The first official Datapanik concert unfolded just recently at Mr Jazz by Chucho Valdes. The supper club at Paseo Herencia on Palm Beach was completely transformed into a concert arena where the popular fusion band mixed a Caribbean sound with an electronic groove, which has surprisingly taken the island by storm, when the band unveiled its repertory during a 4-week tour of the island’s Rum Shops, sponsored by Heineken Beer in March.
Mr Jazz by Chucho Vales in collaborations with Datapanik threw a sensational evening which took off with DJ Intifada, a Latin Caribbean master mixer and Tipico Jara, a local combo. Artists Alida Wever, dance, Ryan Lampe, video & films, Osaira Muyale and Elvis Lopez, plastic artists, contribute their talents to the evening which was recorded live, supported by the Entertainment Group, Digicel Aruba, Cool FM radio and Suave TV. A record number of tickets holders of all age flocked to the club to see Band leader Michael Lampe, in action, delivering an intimate concert mixed with great audio-visual clips and light effects. The production enjoyed an artistic flair, many experimental and novel touches, as well as a musical richness which will surely result in a totally fresh and ear-pleasing music album.
