Heat up the Kimmel Center each month at La NOCHE!  Experience the hottest live bands as you turn up the steam on the dance floor, led by host/dance leader Kevin Ngo. Enjoy the sexy rhythms of The Caribbean and Latin America as live bands serve up a caliente mix of music that really makes you want to move.

We kick off the party with The La NOCHE Band, led by master percussionist Arturo Stable.  We then welcome a different guest group to light up the dance floor.

 ¡Baila a la música, bebe las cervezas!

 Dawn Drake & ZapOte:

Bassist, conguera, and singer-songwriter Dawn Drake leads her worldbeat-meets-funk ensemble ZapOte, which breaks down cultural barriers by incorporating everything from Afro-Cuban jazz to hip-hop to samba into a soul-shaking mix. Deep bass grooves and swinging horn lines provide a danceable backdrop for Drake’s socially conscious lyrics, which impart messages of universal consciousness, empowerment, and compassion.

“My music has been described as Global Funk as well as World-Beat­Meets-Funk. I like to call it Global Mixology music because the influences are far reaching: from India to West Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and beyond.” – Dawn Drake
