About us

We don’t stand still!

We bring the Latin vibes into your life and do it with love! We are Papi Chulo, the fast growing Latin & Caribbean brand from the Netherlands. In two years we organized more than 150 events in 30 cities and 4 countries with a total of 80,000 visitors.

A weekly club night in Ibiza, a big indoor and outdoor festival and much more, we are ‘on the move’! We will also go to South America, plan a tour of Spain and… collaborate with world famous artists!

We have introduced a rapidly growing YouTube channel with live sets from Afro Bros, Tribal Kush and many more. In addition, we release music in collaboration with popular and emerging artists worldwide. Stop? We certainly won’t!

Discover the world of Latin vibes

During our events we give people the chance to feel what the Latino vibe is all about in a classy-but-sassy way. A Papi Chulo event is an all-in-one experience: meet new friends, dance or learn to dance with salsa or bachata workshops, discover new DJs and go wild with the resident DJs, hot and new artists, gigs and brass band and take pictures with our dancers and of course our Papigayo! Summed up, all entertainment!

Papi Chulo’s mission is the Latin feel- good – vibes and lifestyle spread by different cultures to connect to each other through music. This is why you will hear a lot of different Latino music, from reggaeton to bachata. Papi Chulo: the party that started in the street with everyone dancing and grew into a night that never ended!

Feel connected

Papi Chulo was founded by Daniël Kingma, who fell head over heels in love with the vibes of South American and Latin music after watching a documentary about Buena Vista Social Club.

Now Papi Chulo has grown into a multicultural team working towards one goal: to create the Latin brand Papi Chulo. We work with a highly dedicated team that builds our network worldwide. We connect producers, DJs, artists, our event and project managers with all the love in our hearts to spread the Latin culture. Papi Chulo, the one and only dance floor where the whole world runs wild and unites!
