Movimientos is proud to present a night of pure Cuban party music from one of the most exciting new Cuban-London bands Wara, plus Orquestra Bombo, a brand new 30-piece Cuban carnival band featuring percussion, horns and vocals that capturing the authentic sounds of Havana. PLUS an exclusive acoustic solo set from Wara lead Juanita Euka.

After the release of their "Flesh and Bone" EP last year and a series of blinding shows, Wara are heating up the stage like never before - securing their reputation as a band whose musical talent, energy and originality will shock you, rock you, keep you dancing till the end and leave you wanting more more more. With contagious, in-your-face vocals from Congolese-Argentinean lead Juanita Euka, inspired keyboard flourishes from MD Eliane Correa, MC Murmur quick on the UK hip hop and a super tight Latin/UK mix on the rhythm section, they combine a lyrically conscious approach with exceptional musicianship.

Orquestra Bombo are a new massive entourage, a 30-piece band with members from all over the world; their vibes spread like wild fire as they effortlessly bring Havana to London through their stunning performances and classic style. We at Movimientos think they’re the next big thing so you better come down and check them out for yourselves! Viva CUBA!

Juanita Euka, niece of legendary Congolese musician Franco, brings us soulful Spanish ballads and African rhythms with unique flair and honesty.
