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.
