BaianaSystem + Flavia Coelho + Prince Fatty

BaianaSystem is one of Brazil’s biggest and baddest live acts. Coming straight out of Bahia, the group not only amplify sound, but also the essence of local traditions. Influenced by Jamaican sound systems, huge percussive bass lines merge with Afro-Latin rhythms such as Frevo, Samba-Reggae, Pagode, Groove Arrastado, Ijexá, Kuduro and Reggae to create a truly unique sound. Inseparable from their music, the band’s distinctive visuals add a further dimension to their live shows.

JM y Juanin & Los Cracks del Puerto

Movimientos welcomes JM y Juanin & Los Crack del Puerto to the Vortex for their debut London show! Coming all the way from Chile these guys give new life to a classic sound. Join us as they run through a repertoire of songs that range from tear-jerking boleros of lost love to everybody-up-and-dance cuecas extolling the virtues of drinking too much wine on never ending nights in the hills of Valparaiso.
