Do you like to move to Latin beats, but find that the Macarena is not doing it for you anymore? Then Movimientos might have something new to offer. The Latin American events organisation doesn't just set up and promote gigs, but also has its own artist agency and record label. You won't find anyone else in the UK with such a broad repertoire for Latin American music. Leaving behind the mainstream performers, you'll get a dose of DJs and bands that bring new fusions to the stage. Listen to a mix of African, Andean, Caribbean, and Spanish influences that will make you want to salsa,samba, and reggae on.
You'll find them performing in nightclubs all around London, and their next port of call is the Hootananny in Brixton on the 7th December. from 9pm. Warming up your winter,
Movimientos will be setting the night on fire with 'tropical beats and global flavours'. Before 10pm, entry is free, and after that it is only £3.
Three bands are ready to spice up your life, all of which have very different styles. Niyi & Co are pioneers in Afro-fusion music, mixing up reggae, hip-hop and poetry with their guitars and djembe drums. Pulenta may sound similar to a traditional school canteen pudding, but their Colombian electronica is anything but conventional. Finally, Los Chinches will take you on a psychedelic adventure through the tropics. It's London keyboards and London guitars they'll be playing, but it's Peruvian rhythms you'll be hearing.
