FLAWA 2020 Launch Party w/ Riobamba

FLAWA (Festival of Latin American Women in Arts) returns in May 2020 and to get you warmed up they've put together a night of femme power at global arts space, EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney). It's set to be a lively night of Latin American pride, fashion, feeling and groove!

Come and dance with us in celebration of Latinx women in arts, with Riobamba whizzing from NYC to bring joy and resistance in a futuristic club set, stylish angel Princess Prada wooing us on the mic with her high-drama reggaeton performance, and our beloved London-based DJ and visual artist Bushbby on decks.

The evening will raise money for the next instalment of the Festival of Latin American Women in Arts, a not-for-profit that aims to elevate and celebrate the work of Latin American women in the UK capital.

More info on the artists:

Riobamba's rowdy, deeply researched live sets reflect nightlife’s power as a site of joy and resistance, amplifying connective tissues between YouTube clips, bodega soundtracks, and noise hyperreality, "suped up with a twisted, industrial gnarl" (Complex). The Fader has called her production work “a radically self-expressive piece of futurism that stands against a single, boxed-in definition of what Latinx club music can be."

Princess Prada is a London and Stockholm-based Latinx artist. Her lyrics portray the hassles and intrigues of a flamboyant Latin American art scene obsessed with getting somewhere in the international contemporary art scene. A voice that talks of crappy day-jobs, filling out art forms, vertical vs transversal love relations of a sapiosexual leaning towards the horizontal.

Bushbby - Artist and DJ Bushbby channels the sounds of her Colombian heritage to bring Afro-Latin grooves and Caribean heat to UK dancefloors.
