Throes + The Shine
LONDON Rich Mix
35-47 Bethnal Green Road
Throes + The Shine embody both adventure and vitality. They are in fact two bands that started out by mixing rock 'n roll (Throes from Porto) with Kuduro (The Shine from Luanda, Angola) and their fusion now spans genres and influences that are spread out through a multitude of cultures. The band use every ounce of their creativity to build an infectious steaming live show that combines the energy of Buraka Som Sistema and Skip & Die with the rhythmic madness of Meridian Brothers. It comes with a party guarantee.
Their latest album Wanga features guest appearances from such global notables as Pierre Kwenders, La Yegros, and Da Chick. Wanga means ‘spell’ in the Angolan dialect of Kimbundu. Throes + The Shine intend to put you under one.
