Another exceptional live Movimientos line-up at Brixton's no.1 venue: The Fontanas perform a hot catalogue of tracks ranging from back-foot Brazilian grooves to funk-fuelled anthems that blow the doors off. Eva Abraham and band come to the stage for a hearty, skillfull mix of Country, Folk, Balkan and Cumbia... We also welcome cinematic baroque group L'Orchestre Du Mont Pleasant, with their instrumental sounds moving between Congolesesoukous, Ethiopian jazz and cumbia. And of course our Movimientos DJs will be playing their trademark killer combo of old school Latin tunes and the newest Cumbia, Dancehall and experimental mash-ups.

Movimientos DJs

The Fontanas - Brazilian Funk meets Samba Soul, Ska and Bossa Nova; rare grooves for your beautiful ears from this band of many talents. With influences scattered across the globe, the music finds its roots in the foothills of Brazil and Jamaica, but defines its sound from its urban home in West London.

Eva Abraham Band
is fronted by bold vocalist Eva with songs that are lilting, poetic, sometimes romantic, other times witty, combining diverse influences ranging from Folk, Ska, Country, with flavours of Eastern European Gypsy, Cumbia, Blues and Jazz, with tight musicians who will make you happy.

Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant

The band has already toured and performed in France, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro. Their LP is now out on Catapulte Records.

While everyday people respect Olmeca’s lyrical content, activists are drawn by his analytical intensity, hip-­hop heads appreciate the edgy delivery, music connoisseurs value the production, and educators utilize Olmeca’s music in their classrooms to provide a counter narrative. Olmeca’s diverse background has led to his blending of musical genres and his MCing and music have become a way to express his experiences, a prolific writer who deftly depicts his upbringing and gives social commentary with energy, charisma and
