    WOMAD Festival | World of Children | 24-26 July

    Festivals are special for me! at sixteen, I went to Reading Festival drinking sickly alcopops and dancing to The Stone Roses in low-slung combats.

    About Us

    Here you can find a bit of information about the birth of TimbaGeek.

    We are a group of salsa fanatics of cuban salsa; some already involved, with some years in the Salsa world in the UK & some very beginners.

    Any time you can find us somewhere at Salsa clubs, Festivals, congresses or any other event with cuban flavour.

    We couldn`t find one site that included all the relevant information, a “timba geek” should know, like where to go dancing and other Salsa links.

    After having a lovely meal and a few bottles of champagne (to be honest, they were more like beers), we decided to put our efforts together to create an easy access website for "timba geeks". This is our contribution! A selection of events for London, of course, with other useful news. This is a small selection and we know that it will never be complete, but we'll try our best to update ourselves with the most important events and news around.

    If you have any questions or if you want more information or you would like to be kept up to date, just send us a mail to info@timbageek.com

    ¡Sueltate Salsero y ven a bailar! ¡Tenemos el sabor que te gusta!
