SATURDAY NIGHT: Bombo Tropical! at Upstairs at the Ritzy looks like a good option for a chilled out Saturday night, in what is certainly tropical weather. South London duo, Abioye & Randall, will explore the music of West and North Africa through song, infectious guitar, and kick-drum rhythms. And the Brazilian music duo Catarina Moreno & Gabriel Sotiry will be performing too, alongside resident DJs Kalinka, DVS and Junior Otamon. Doors: 8pm Tickets: £5.
