Casabella are inspired by their multi-ethnic backgrounds and they playfully take Latin-Funk and combine it with big vocals, sweet percussion, horn blasts and more than a splash of Salsa. "Casabella's music is an infectious soundscape of pop, latin funk, reggae and Brazilian samba which transports you to carnival season in sunnier climes no matter the time of year"

DJ Arias is co-founder of Movimientos and always pushing the boundaries of Latin music, whilst staying true to his Colombian roots. He’s no stranger to London and festival dance floors with his malicious blend of "Classicos" and "Dutty" Tropical beats. From Deep Salsa at El Barco Latino, to Baile Funk sessions at the Egg King Cross or Tropical Bass at Favela Chic, Arias can fire-up any crowd with his naughty selection. Expect Hi-octane salsitas, booming Cumbiambas, red hot rumbas flamencas, with a twist of Venezuelan tambor and touch of Dominican speedy merengue Cali style.
