Gig of the week: Shantel & Bucovina Club Orkestar live at Electric Brixton with The Actionettes


From avant house DJ to the crowned king of the Balkan castle, Shantel’s musical career has taken him around the world filling dancefloors and festivals with his infectious hits like Bucovina and Disko Partizani (see below)..

Tonight he returns to London with his amazing full band, the Bucovina Club Orkestar, armed with his Rickenbacker guitar, a fresh sound and a new album (Anarchy & Romance) to electrify Brixton’s Christmas at Electric Brixton.

This could be the last time? Actionettes dance at How Does It Feel To Be Loved at the Canterbury Arms, Brixton

Support comes from the mindbendingly brilliant all girl Sixties dance troupe, The Actionettes (above), plus DJs Sacha Dieu & Russ Jones dropping the hottest Electroswing, Ghettofunk, Rock N Roll & Cumbia around.


Congratulations to Joanna @JoHolt81 who won a pair of tickets we were giving away for this gig. It’s sure to be a Christmas cracker to warm Brixton’s cockles on a chilly winter night.
