From Castle’s to Dizzying Heights!


Well what a summer it’s been for the Bacana crew, and what an action packed foray of gigs we have to report back too! Since our last post advertising the amazing Gwyl Arall, we can now tick “play in a Castle” off our “to do” list, and, we not only played in a Castle but got to share the bill with some of Wales’ finest musicians, Yr Ods, Lleuwen Steffan and the one and only Geraint Jarman. We arrive for sound check around 5ish and then head over to Oren for some of Gert’s fine cuisine to provide us with sustenance for the gig. We then head back to the Castle, which is filling up with camping chairs and bottles of cava; these guys look set for a party!

Telfords Warehouse


Banda Bacana had great fun at Telford’s Warehouse – a cool venue, fluffy crowd, and great sound! We got a this lovely feedback from the venue:

I was there for the whole show and thought you guys where great. The crowd was really into it and you got everybody moving. It’s ace to have such an entertaining band in the venue and I will for sure look to get you back at some point.

Cheers, Mike DTelford’s Warehouse

Thank you Kaya!

Banda Bacana would like to say a big thank you to Kaya for organising their lovely festival on the Menai Straits on the beautiful Vaynol Estate.  It was amazing to see such world class musicians playing in our area.  And all the local bands, artists and promoters pulled out the stops so thanks to them too!

Mid Summer Madness

We are happy to that we are now running the latest version of WordPress.  And as usual the lovely folk in the WordPress community kept us on the right track. As well as running new software on our website Banda Bacana is enjoying the summer!

We’ve been invited to play at some lovely events. Botanical Beats in Treborth Botanical Gardens was great!  As usual the event was a colourful mix of music, food, art and crafts with a lovely friendly vibe,  raising money and awareness about the Gardens and the work that goes on there. The photo above is taken by Edyta of Emagine Pictures. See more of Emagine’s wonderful photos of botanical beats on Facebook Another highlight was our first foray down the Conwy Valley bringing Afro Latin dance grooves to Trefriw Village Hall.  Great night, great crowd! We’d love to go back and play there!

Festival season is upon us.  And you may find the BBs at a wedding, party or beach near you! Check out our Myspace or connect with us on Facebook for up to date info 🙂
