He is known as 'the hardest working man in the tropical music industry': Alex Figueira. The Venezuelan-Portuguese musician, producer, and DJ earned this title for good reason! In addition to his solo career, Alex is active in the tropical psych-punk group Fumaca Preta and the Afro-Caribbean psychedelic sensation Conjunto Papa Upa, both of which he founded. He certainly doesn't sit still. And neither will you during this edition of Kaleidoscope! With Figueira's music, you'll feel like you're at a tropical party. This party comes with a musical cocktail of Latin American music, Caribbean influences, danceable cumbia vibes, and elements of funk, soul, and psychedelic music. Tonight, Alex, along with two musician friends, will create a dance party at M.

On his solo debut album "Mentallogenic," Figueira plays every instrument himself. As if that weren’t enough, he also handles all the technical details single-handedly. The album was widely praised, with The Guardian calling it ‘a crate digger's delight.’ Giles Peterson of BBC 6 recommended his listeners to add everything by Alex Figueira to their playlists. Dance along to the cheerful, sweet sound of this musical multi-talent!


M becomes the ultimate club for your Friday night once a month! Kaleidoscope continuously surprises you with an eclectic mix of music styles. Here, the familiar meets the unexpected, and traditional sounds blend seamlessly with modern psychedelia and pop. Get ready to practice your dance moves: at Kaleidoscope, you'll be on your feet. Just as the pattern of a kaleidoscope constantly changes and amazes, so does this new program lineup. The best sounds from all corners of the world unite on the stage of M. Guaranteed to be a great start to your weekend!


The doors of M open at 9:00 PM, where you can start enjoying a drink and the music of DJ Kaliman. The concert starts at 10:00 PM and lasts until approximately 11:15 PM. After Alex Figueira's performance, the DJ will spin some more tracks for another hour to complete the evening!
