Up until a few months ago, Miami felt empty.

The shortage of Afro-Caribbean rhythms in a city built by Afro-Caribbean immigrants was downright shameful. We had become the Big Mango tree without roots.

But then Tumbao happened, and Afro-Caribbean beats found a permanent home at the intersection of I-95 and Calle Ocho.

“My partner Danny and I are part Cuban, and we wanted to celebrate our heritage,” says Roxanne Scalia, owner of PAX, New Times’ 2012 pick for Best Venue for Local Acts. “Hence Noches Tumbao.”
