Firing up the soundsystem with a unique mix of classic latin rhythms like Samba, Salsa, Cumbia and Merengue with fresh urban and electronic sounds from Dancehall and Reggaeton, to Baile Funk and Tecnobrega plus plenty of Tropical bass and global ghetto beats.

Expect tropical decor, face-painting, a special food shack and cocktail stall.

Big band La Papayera are an 8-piece ensemble who’ve set many stages alight including Womad, Carnaval del Pueblo, Barbican and Shepherds Bush Empire, to name a few. Led by the charismatic singer Angelica Lopez and harnessing the accordian flourishes of young maestro Jose Hernando Arias (BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy) the band comprises some of the finest Colombian musicians living in London all with impressive pedigrees as musicians and names on the vibrant London Latin scene. Together they’ll remind you just what happy chaos a little sunshine, good spirits and great music can cause when combined mashed up together by the experts.

Movimientos celebrates the launch of their brand new website and the start of their label Movimientos Records with a clubnight at one of their favourite venues – Dalston’s Passing Clouds. The night will feature the usual groundbreaking mix of documentary film and Latin music.

Live music comes courtesy of the band whose EP features as the first release on Movimientos Records – Wara. The band are truly one of the most exciting new acts to emerge from the London Latin scene with their blistering take on Cuban timba and salsa mixing it with Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Reggae and Dubstep. It’s like classic Cuban band Irakere re-invented with a 21st century urban London sound. On the night we welcome another Movimientos favourite and highly unique act Lokandes who provide a similar re-interpretation of Latin music, this time bringing the melodies and rhythms of the Andes bang up to date with a very funky twist.

As usual Residents DJs Arias and Cal Jader fire up the dancefloor with their incendiary mix of Latin beats from salsa and cumbia to electro-tropical bass, urban and global beats. Plus the all Brazilian crew Udigrudi host upstairs with their uplifting party blend of Brazilian beats, tropicalia, afro-latin sounds, reggae and funk.

And upstairs early there will be a screening of ‘Mama Choco’ presented by Refuge in Films.
The film follows Paulina, a displaced mother of 26 children, in her quest to find a place that she and her family can call home in Cali, the third biggest city in Colombia.

In August we present a great double bill starting with Casabella, an exciting Latin-Beat band that has a unique relentless groove taking you on an exhilarating trip to Rio, Kingston and the Mediterranean Sea via their lively melodic tunes. Their music is a mix of Latin rhythms, samba and reggae with lyrics in English, Italian, Spanish and French. Having played tours in Italy, Cyprus and France and releasing their album “A Flower” under the label “CM Records” in Europe, Australia, India and North America they are ready to take London by storm.

And we also welcome the fantastic Katy Prado and The Mamboleros. A crack band of some of London’s finest musicians join celebrated Chilean singer Katy Prado for this blistering new project. A magical blend of 50’s Cuban music fusion, Mambo and Cha Cha Cha brought together with Rockabilly and some operatic vocal sounds that will bring you out of this world. Put your dancing shoes and come and fill your hearts with the amazing sounds of The Mamboleros.

Plus keeping it moving on the dancefloor between the bands we welcome the unrelated but similarly inspired DJ Karamel from Globoloco whose successful regular nights in Brixton are quickly becoming one of South London’s best and wildest night’s out. They’ll be spinning sounds from around the equator, and venturing across the globe – tonight with a Latin twist – Boogaloo, Cumbia, Funk Carioca, Dancehall, Funk, Highlife, Latin Hiphop, Mambo, Reggae, Samba and Ska – always finely spiced and fully blended!
