KAARA

Funk, Folk, Soul and Reggae. If you want to dance then this is the night to come to!! They will rock it out and get you moving. This is going to be a brilliant night.

KAARA – Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Kaara is “beloved; friend” In Chile, native Quechua speakers used the word kaara to describe not just a person’s face, but the being behind that face-the mind-the soul, the person within. Kaara was a means of breaking down social distinctions, and recognizing the inner-quality and equality that binds us all.”
