Movimientos' DJ Cal Jader plays before and after the band with his trademark blend of red hot 'classico' latin beats, uptempo carnival rhythms, tropical bass, and fresh global party sounds.
And early on (7pm) London Mexico Solidarity presents a special documentary film screening of the film 'A Place Called Chiapas' celebrating 20 years of the Zapatista Uprising.

Malphino

Colombian Cumbia and Brazilian Forró mashed up with exotica and Italian film score influences.
Malphino play a heady mix of Latin American music - from Brazilian Forró to Colombian Cumbia via a variety of tropical rhythms and a nod of the hat to Italian film score. While based in London, members of Malphino hail from all corners of the world (including Japan, Malaysia, Réunion island and the Philippines). The band is a conceptual music project based around an imaginary island called 'Malphino' and the band aims for the music to transport the audience to this beautiful island culture where everyone is equal and everything is good.

A Place Called Chiapas

(1998. Dir. Nettie Wild)

On January 1, 1994, the Zapatista National Liberation Army, made up of impoverished Mayan Indians from the state of Chiapas, took over five towns and 500 ranches in southern Mexico.?Filmmaker Nettie Wild travelled to the jungle canyons of southern Mexico to film the elusive and fragile life of the uprising. Her camera effectively and movingly captures the human dimensions behind this war of symbols.
