Movimientos presents an unbeatable line up to help you welcome the New Year with originality and brilliance... at Brixton's No.1 venue. Get ready for:

Perkelt = Celtic Medieval Speed Folk. Need we say more? They're new, they're brilliant, and they'll certainly burn a hole in your dancing shoes. Taking the instrumental traditions and medieval roots of folk music and adding a good measure of 21st century speed culture and modernism, the band formed in Czech Republic in 2008 at a Conservatory. After they found shapes of their musical expressions, they started gigging, recorded two albums (PerKelt 2008 and Musica Mardania 2011) ... and then, thankfully for us, decided to move to UK and do the same again.

Eri Okan are a carnival band, an afro block, an expression of original street culture, integral to London; its roots in Samba-Reggae and the Afro-centric music of North East Brazil fused with Afro Beat and Jamaican Reggae. At their core is a drum section of between four and twenty percussionists, knocking out the wicked sounds of the repinique, timbau, surdo and caixa; backing up the singing and songwriting talents of Xavier Osmir (Brazil), Seyi Adjeigbe (Nigeria), Marcina Arnold (UK) and Rebeca Valim (Brazil).

The Boom Yeh are a London based Funk-Jazz-Rock-Soul-Afrobeat collective (formerly known as "Jon Speedy Band") led by lead/rhythm guitarist & composer JON SPEEDY in collaboration with saxophonist & horn arranger IAN BAILEY. Featuring drummer JIMMY NORDEN, bass player DAN SWAIN & trombone player NICK MILLS + guest performers/musicians. You will love them.

Three amazing acts on one Movimientos stage. We're consisistly bringing you the biggest new sounds of Latin-London. Join the movement.
