El Gran Mono x Heartical Hi-Powa

After immense success in late 2019, the long awaited return of Soundsystem Giants is finally here! Foreign Brothers, together with El Gran Mono and Heartical Hi-Powa are proud to bring you the second instalment of this heavyweight meeting of sound systems.

Melbourne’s original reggae and dub sound system Heartical Hi-Powa will again come together with Colombian picó sound system, El Gran Mono in this cultural exchange of Caribbean sound system styles in a family friendly gathering.

Since it’s conception in 2002, Hertical Hi-Powa has made a significant contribution to Australia’s musical landscape. In 2018, Melbourne also became home to El Gran Mono—the first picó sound system built outside Colombia. This event will bring both together for a day dedicated to sharing the music and cultures that birthed these two unique local icons.

Featuring on El Gran Mono will be Carlo Xavier (Sabrosa / Analog Africa), Jumps (Cat Empire), Jolie de Vogue (El Gran Mono), Mohair Slim (PBS) with MC Oscar Jimenez (Amaru Tribe); and Heartical Hi-Powa will feature Stryka D (Break The Chain Radio Show PBS, Dub Club Melbourne) at the Controls with MC Stick Mareebo (Jamaican Music and Food Festival Melbourne)
