Watussi

10:30 PM The Moon Bar - Empire Hotel, 339 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley

The unmistakeable distorted riffs and funked-up percussive rhythms of Watussi (pronounced “WAH–too–SEE”, translated from the Cuban slang “the most handsome man at the party”) signifies one of the most dynamic and unique groups to come out of the multicultural broth of Sydney’s Bondi beach. Lead by Colombian born Oscar Jimenez with a sound that has been variously described as ‘Afro-Colombian rock and roots’ and ‘Rage Against The Machine with horns’, it wasn't long after the first few gigs as a fully formed eight piece that their wild live shows, powerful original compositions and ability to destroy genres saw them gain a huge following with an ever widening and diverse fan-base.
