In July 2024, two local powerhouses will come together for a unique night of roots, Latin, folk and reggae. Expect on-stage collaborations and surprise special guests as Los Chavos and Kopasetic hit Belco Arts’ amazing lakeside venue in The Theatre. Get your dancing shoes ready!

Los Chavos are Canberra locals who have captivated Australian audiences with their original urban Latin music for over 15 years. The eight-piece live-group plays Latin Ska, Cumbia Reggae and more. Their vibrant live sound was captured in their first EP in 2008, showcasing their unique artistic vision that blended ska, Latin rock and Andean rhythms and their debut album ‘SuperMeng’ further showcased their signature energy – ska/reggae roots, with a mix of Afro-Latin rhythms, from cumbia to dub/reggae, merengue, timba and chakarera.

Their most recent live album was recorded at ArtSound FM:

NOTE: This is a dancefloor-style event with limited seating. The show may contain strobe lighting and haze.


Kopasetic is an energetic indie-roots sextet from Canberra, dosing their audiences with earthy rhythms and earnest messages over a melting pot of modern rock-reggae, soul, blues and folk. The band thoroughly explore the limits of these genres, with bone-shaking off-beat grooves, psychedelic instrumentals and soulful ballads.
