Latin Jazz band Heads South will be playing Studland Village Hall later this February, it has been confirmed.

The London band has been booked by Artsreach, the Dorset touring arts organisation.

Artsreach spokesman Kerry Bartlett said: "Heads South plays sizzling Latin Jazz, weaving together Cuban and other Latin rhythms with harmonious melodies in an enthralling repertoire of original and classic tunes.

"The music encompasses memorable new original music, such as El Cardenal and La Plaza, plus new arrangements of much-loved standards and timeless classics such as Besame Mucho and Milonga del Angel."

The quintet boasts an exciting lineup including top UK trumpeter Steve Waterman and Cuban percussionist Chino Martell Morgan on conga's, bongos, cajon and guiro.

Buster Birch plays the drums, timbale and castanets, while Venezuelan bassist Adolfredo Pulido weaves the rhythms together.

Composer John Harriman plays piano and organ.

Kerry said: "Expect an evening of scintillating Latin-inspired music as Heads South perform twice in Dorset this spring through Artsreach."

The band play Winterborne Stickland Hall on Saturday, February 27, at 7.30pm.

Then, on Sunday, February 28, at 7.30pm, they'll take the stage at Studland Village Hall.
