Come join the Movimientos familia at Passing Clouds as we storm into 2014 in a whirlwind of carnival colours and the freshest sounds from the global and Latin underground. This February, we’re excited to be sharing this event with award winning festival pioneers Copperdollar, who will be hosting an exclusive London launch party album for their brand new compilation ‘The Back of Beyond.’ Copperdollar have honed their formidable reputation from Glastonbury to the National Theatre, and their label Freshly Squeezed is adept at fusing the Hispanic and Latin traditions with a uniquely modern twist. Like that wasn’t enough to make you reach for your dancing shoes, downstairs the floor will be bursting with live music from riotous big band the Voodoo Love Orchestra, as well as the infectious Afro-Latin jams of Animanz. Movimientos DJs follow on the decks to take the street party vibes into the morning, and just like that, ¡Todos, a bailar!

Voodoo Love Orchestra
Cumbia / Ska / Highlife / Bigband

Supernatural tropical brass band the Voodoo Love Orchestra is a riot of carnival attitude, global beats and theatrical peformance. Harking back to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America and Africa with infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music, Voodoo Love is a globe-trotting ensemble encompassing Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, New Orleans Jazz, Mississippi Blues, Nigerian Afrobeat, Jamaican Ska and Ghanaian Highlife to name but a few. A celebratory, brass heavy salute to the roots of carnival, these guys never fail to go all-out.

Animanz
Afro /Latin / Funk / Hip Hop

It’s fair to say that West London boys Animanz know how to kick off a party. Expect an eclectic mix of Afrobeat, Latin rhythms, Hip Hop and Funk, drenched in a swathe of heavy guitars and catchy brass hooks.

BaianaSystem + Flavia Coelho + Prince Fatty

BaianaSystem is one of Brazil’s biggest and baddest live acts. Coming straight out of Bahia, the group not only amplify sound, but also the essence of local traditions. Influenced by Jamaican sound systems, huge percussive bass lines merge with Afro-Latin rhythms such as Frevo, Samba-Reggae, Pagode, Groove Arrastado, Ijexá, Kuduro and Reggae to create a truly unique sound. Inseparable from their music, the band’s distinctive visuals add a further dimension to their live shows.

JM y Juanin & Los Cracks del Puerto

Movimientos welcomes JM y Juanin & Los Crack del Puerto to the Vortex for their debut London show! Coming all the way from Chile these guys give new life to a classic sound. Join us as they run through a repertoire of songs that range from tear-jerking boleros of lost love to everybody-up-and-dance cuecas extolling the virtues of drinking too much wine on never ending nights in the hills of Valparaiso.
