Bossaphonik is firmly established as Oxford's hub for live jazz-dance and world-dance.

Established in October 2004 by Dan Ofer and Gil Karpas, it has blossomed into a celebratory night and has played host to 100 great bands.

It has become something of a movement and community of people passionate about quality of live music, and of course, dancing the night away.

So come on down to The Cellar on any first Friday of the month and The Bullingdon on alternate months. Chill with your friends for the first hour while the DJs play nourishing music for the mind and soul, experience the energy of a wicked live band, then dance your socks off to the most tasteful global beats till the early hours!


Friday 2nd March @ The Cellar

Camo Clave Bossaphonik

Bossaphonik this March at The Cellar features a band with a cutting edge perspective on Latin music courtesy of Bristol's Camo Clave followed by a global beats club session with DJ Bossaphonik Dan and DJ Giles. 

Camo Clave bring a new "electro-tropical" perspective on Latin music by bringing an updated electronic-laced interpretation of the regions sounds. They transport salsa and cumbia grooves into this era utilising a full sounding 7 piece band with horns, classic percussion section, lead female vocals and synths and effects. Band leader and trumpeter Joe Longridge formed the band following the inspiration of hearing DJs playing remixes and club dancefloor interpretations of long-established Latin American genres.
