Movimientos has celebrated Dia De Los Muertos for 4 years now at the Arts Club, always with a special shrine, which we invite people to bring contributions to and specially curated visuals. This year we dedicate the night to the spirit of revolutionary activists and cultural protagonists across Latin America. We will be donating any profits to a Peruvian charity called The Spiritual Garden of The Arts, a project aim is to rescue ancient arts, crafts and traditional medicine in native communities.

Movimientos is one of the most forward-thinking Latin nights in the capital with their DJ mix of new and old-school Latin rhythms from salsa and cumbia to tropical bass, Brazilian, urban and electronic beats. Live music comes from a diverse selection of London based acts from the Latin, Spanish and global music scene... YES!!!
