Live acts: Maguare // Vibrations of Sound// Flowsnatcha

DJs: Movimientos Collective

Maguare were founded in 2009 as a Latin big band and they sport a hefty shining rhythm and horn section, with a repertoire of cumbia and Afro-Colombian specialities, fronted by Jazz singer Paola Marquez exploring her Colombian roots in the retro dance rhythms of Cumbia. . "Maguaré is undoubtedly one of the renovators of the genre [cumbia] in Europe. The 11-piece big band starts off where Lucho Bermudez stopped in the 60's and takes it a little further with jazzsinger Paola Marquez and a series of fresh compositions with elements from jazz, brass and even hiphop." (Zephyrus Music 2013)


FlowSnatcha brings together Cuban MC Florian and Swiss-Argentinean DJ/Producer The Snatcha for a heavy hitting musical cross-pollination that affirms the contemporary versatility of Afro-Cuban beats. Anchored in sound of the Caribbean and in Cuban Hip Hop, blending in elements of Dancehall and Moombahton with electronic dance music (House, Dubstep, and tropical bass), soulful vocals and a touch of Merengue, Timba and Swing. Winner of Lukas Entertainment Award for Urban Act 2013.


Vibrations of Sound are an eight-piece psychedelic soul group from London will get the party started with an effortless sound that combines Latin, funk, Afrobeat and with a little R'n'B thrown in for good measure and?vocals close to the tone of Bill Withers.
