More info on the DJs
Geko Jones is one half of New York's legendary party starters Que Bajo - alongside Uproot Andy he's been setting off dance floors? in the US and across Latin America with their heavyweight mix of Latino, African and Caribbean roots rhythms with global bass and digital sounds. He's just released a Palenque remixed compilation on his label Dutty Artz with a host of tropical bass producers giving a modern spin to African rooted folkloric music from the Atlantic coast of Colombia.

From Paris Pedrolito is another tropical bass head, especially nueva cumbia as can be heard on his heavyweight "Dale amor a la cumbia que la cumbia te lo devuelve" mixtapes. He's currently DJ for Radio Groovalizacion, Radio CapSao, Radio Anáhuac Mayab and Radioglobal.org and has shared bills with the likes of Uproot Andy, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Fauna, Sergent Garcia, Miss Bolivia, El Hijo de la Cumbia, the SoulJazz Orchestra, and Joao Brasil.

After a long absence from the decks we are delighted to welcome back Ffftang Ffftang's Marsali to the fold - her DJ style mixing Cumbia and Salsa with Dancehall and Hip Hop fits perfectly into the Baila Con Dios / Movimientos format.
