Autumn Fiesta

The days are getting shorter but here at Movimientos we have the perfect remedy to those post-summer blues! We’ve got two killer bands Grupo Lokito and Animanz, bringing you some ever-so-slightly-unhinged tropical goodness. Plus direct from Amsterdam UMOJA, along with Tru Thoughts' Don Pascal, plus Movimientos DJs will keep you rocking until the small hours.

MOVIMIENTOS FIESTA AT PASSING CLOUDS

GRUPO LOKITO
An incendiary fusion of Congolese and Latin vibrations

Formed in 2006 by British Latin pianist Sara McGuinness and Congolese singer Jose Hendrix Ndelo, Grupo Lokito’s musicians are a mix of Congolese, Latin and British artists who have chosen to make London their home.

Lokito’s energetic front-line of singers are true performers, and when the groove steps up a notch in the blistering salsa and seben sections, their outlandish dancing has to be seen to be believed.

ANIMANZ
Outerplanetary Afro-Latin Hip Hop Punks

Born into captivity, Animanz rattled, scratched, bit and tore until during 2013 they developed an awareness of what lay beyond the caged confines of London Zoo. As they explored, certain events lead them to experience such sounds as 'No Future' and 'Killa House Wife From Outta Space'. Described as HipFunkAfroLatinHop, an Animanz show is a safari through the dense urban jungle into a myotropic world of groove, energy & exhilaration.

Hear the Animanz upcoming EP in the flesh before anyone else, as we unleash them on Passing Clouds. The tropical flame, Juanita Euka, will be holding the stage as mistress of ceremonies while Animanz take you on a safari through Afro Latin swamps and ancient Funk ruins.

Big band madness. Not one to miss, who knows when they will emerge again.

UMOJA
Direct from Amsterdam, embracing the power of sunshine, come UMOJA. An organic evolution between two humble groove aficionados whose paths crossed over half a decade ago. Combining electronic productions and the understanding of world rhythms, their music is an expression of their love of experimentation with African, South American and exotic traditions.

UMOJA will take you on a tropical trip filled with deep basslines, Afro Rhythm’s, exotic dubs, toxic cumbia’s combined with beats and much love.

No hips and no leg remain unaffected.


DON PASCAL (TRU THOUGHTS)
A key player in the story of World Music, Don Pascal, brings his classic latin sounds from Boogaloo to Salsa Dura. Originally from Toulouse, Don Pascal started DJ-ing in Paris in the early ‘90s. He was a pioneer in promoting Black music artists, who had a hard time signing with French major labels despite being an essential part of the scene. Influenced greatly by Gilles Peterson, his work has been supported by tastemakers across the world, to add to big love on French national stations including Radio Nova and now Back2Back FM.
