Wara:

'Leave to Remain' is the debut album by Wara, the young revolutionaries of the UK's Latin music scene, and follows their critically acclaimed self-titled EP (Movimientos Records, 2011). The genre-defying 'Leave to Remain', to be released 1 July 2013 on Movimientos Records, sees the band take their trademark sound to higher grounds, effortlessly combining Cuba's most danceable rhythms and styles – timba ("Cuban salsa"), songo, cha-cha-cha, rumba - with contemporary urban elements such as reggae, soul, hip-hop and jazz. The songs on the album are threaded with bilingual, conscious lyrics that inject social and political commentary into their music in a variety of ways: there are songs that directly touch upon the topics of migration, identity and displacement.

The band have been packing dancefloors and starting parties on the London and UK global scene for the last three years having played at Glastonbury, The Big Chill Festival, Secret Garden Party, Barbican's Blaze Festival, the Roundhouse, Ronnie Scott’s to name just a few. The launch party follows a highly successful UK tour with La Linea taking in 7 dates around the country and is preceeded by festival appearances at Glastonbury (27/28 June) and the Secret Garden Party (27 July).
