Wara + The Indios + La Doctrina + Me Gusta DJs

Our favourite Latin powerhouse finally returns to Hootananny Brixton! Wara are back with new music and renewed vigour, ready to shake the foundations with their bass-heavy Afro-Latin grooves. Alongside them indie-tropical upstarts The Indios heat up the dancefloor and Blues and Funk from Chile’s La Doctrina, with Manchester collective Me Gusta DJs keeping things moving and connecting the dots throughout the night.

Havana London Soundclash

Playing deep into the rhythms of urban Latin America, driven by the grooves of Afro-Latin music and mobilised by the dynamic sounds of London’s underground, Wara is an award-winning musical outfit that fuels its signature sound with bass-heavy dembow, biting synths and hip hop. Led by producer and composer Eliane Correa, the band formed in 2010, and has since become known for powering a Latin American narrative that celebrates regional music cultures such as mambo and cumbia. With backgrounds spanning from Cuba to Congo, Venezuela and Chile, Wara’s performances are a musical homage to their heritage; provocative and potent, this Pan-Latin powerhouse is paving a way of its own.

Indie-Tropical Party Starters

London based indie-tropical band The Indios was born after two friends from Colombia decided to find a way to get even the shyest person dancing, blending traditional Colombian rhythms such as champeta, chande and cumbia with heavy indie guitars and powerful synths.

Latin Blues From Chile

La Doctrina is a three piece band from Chile. Their music has a distinctive stamp that could be named as Latin Blues, born from the fusion of blues with derivatives of afro-descendant rhythms
such as funk, swing and latin jazz.

Afro-Latin & Tropical Beats

Me Gusta is a multicultural collective based in Manchester UK.? Bespoke, unearthed and raw-like sounds stemming from Afro-Latin, European and Middle Eastern music styles capturing traditional and new age rhythms all under one roof, united, expressive and free.
