Havana Calling presents Muévete! @ Notting Hill Arts Club

Saturday 18th October

7pm-2am // Free before 9pm // £6 before 10pm // £8 after 10pm

Decks: DJs Cal Jader & special guest DJ Tahira (Sao Paulo)

Live: Animanz (Early from 7.30pm)


This month DJ Cal Jader is joined by the legendary Brazilian selector and producer Tahira for the monthly fiesta that is?Muévete with it's original formula of uptempo Latino-Caribbean-Tropical soundclash vibe where classic rhythms get bastardised and twisted up for the modern dancefloor.


Making a long awaited return to London the DJ, producer and digger Tahira blends genres and eras, from traditional sounds to the electronic mixtures from the DJ culture, hugely influenced by African, Latin, Brazilian, jazz, 70s funk, disco and soul music.

His recent releases including 'Baiano' with Mental Abstrato on Far Out Recordings have been gaining him many plaudits from the likes of François K, Gilles Peterson, Laurent Garnier and Nickodemus - whilst his edit of Gilberto Gil's 'Toda Menina Baiana' was even given the thumbs up by Gil himself who shared on his Twitter and Facebook.


Plus on the early live set from 7.30pm there's a chance to catch west London's very own local Afro-Latin Hip Hop punks Animanz with their riotous very funky sounds.


PURE TROPICAL PARTY VIBES!! A favourite for Saturday night crowds in West London, Muévete is a monthly fiesta - a pure party version of Movimientos, with a dance floor-slammin' mash up of raw Latin beats and tropical bass. From the rolling Latin rhythms of salsa, cumbia, merengue and Samba to the raw urban flavours of reggaeton, Hip Hop, dancehall, moombahton, baile funk and dutty carnival rhythms, incorporating a healthy dose of African beats and global underground music.


Put simply Muévete translates as 'Move it!' so we're not beating around the bush - straight to the dancefloor!
