After a massive year for Wara which saw the release of their debut album 'Leave To Remain' to great acclaim including a 4 star review in the Guardian, a fantastic La Linea sponsored tour taking in Brighton and Hay festivals amongst 7 UK wide dates, numerous festival appearances notably Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party and a sell out show at London's iconic Jazz Café; it's a time for a celebration as Movimientos presents the official music video launch party for the title track from their album 'Leave To Remain' at Camden's The Forge.

There's no mistaking that it's been a whirlwind 2013, and now the band are excited to play their final gig of the year to coincide with the launch of their first music video. Come and join the celebration for this flourishing band, as we look forward to another great year in 2014!

On the night the band will be supported by up and coming afro-latin funksters Animanz with Movimientos DJs joining the dots between Cuban beats and sounds from the latin underground.

Quite simply, Wara’s Leave to Remain is a work of Latin-London genius, an album whose impeccable fusion between experimental form and insightful content makes it a compelling, unique and socially important release.*****Sounds and Colours

"Wara combine music, words, joy, and social awareness in such a way that as you listen to them your feet can't keep still and neither can your brain, and that's got to be a good thing!" Ian Macmillan, The Verb, BBC Radio 3

"Fresher than a newly minted mojito ... their infectious rhythms and political consciousness will stir the heart and feet to movement of different kinds." Musika blog
