Rufino, violinist and specialist crooner, renowned for his work with Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, brings his sensational solo show Rufino and the Coconuts to Tathra Hotel Sat 17 and Sun 18 Feb, with a full 8 piece band to shake your very bones.
Rufino the Catalan Casanova has set sail on an incredible solo voyage. Troubled winds, a mutinous crew and a wrecked boat have thrown him on a new and treacherous course into the dark heart of the Caribbean! There - by chance or destiny? - he has found a new band of castaways, troubled geniuses and misfits in the fertile rhythm-rich jungles of the Tropics - forming Rufino and The Coconuts!
The Coconuts provide a brooding backbeat to Rufino’s Euro-melodic stylings and the result is part Afro-Latin Tumbele, part Jamaican Rocksteady, part island holiday sleaze-pop – all wrapped up in a wild Voodoo ritual!
