MOVIMIENTOS presents MANOS PA’ARRIBA : As well as playing some of the tightest traditional cumbias you can hear this side of Bogota, Manos Pa’Arriba also use their vast knowledge of Balkan music for a delightfully danceable BalKumbia sound. +

BAQUE DE AXÉ : Coming from a movement of maracatu in the UK that stretches back till the early 90’s, Baque de Axé is the latest incarnation of Pernambuco’s maracatu spirit in London. With a pedigree that started with Acorda Povo, that developed into Maracatu Estrela do Norte, this group has now blossomed into Baque de Axé. As part of the family of Recife Carnival champions, Nação do Maracatu Porto Rico, Baque de Axé bring the thunderous drums of resistance, the songs celebrating their community, and their roots in Candomblé, and the dancers – expressing their connection with the African and indigenous spirituality and traditions that are at the heart of the art form and cultural expression that is MARACATU. +

DANDALUZ Spanish, Chilean and London based band Dandaluz bring together rumba rhythms, pachanga, flamenco, salsa and bossa nova for harmonic and upbeat tunes. +

The regular MOVMIENTOS DJs bringing a mixture of tropical bass and electrocumbia to the dancefloor. Djs such as DJ Cal Jader.
