Movimientos Presents: Bulldozer

Guitarist and producer Fabián Morales formed the band in 2014 with Adela Espitia - voice and percussion and performance - and Sandro Londoño - drums and percussion. Their sound is full of energetic songs, with a strong influence of the Congolese soukous, the main root of the Colombian champeta but without forgetting funk, traditional Colombian rhythms, electronic sounds and synthesizers. Artists like Lokassa Ya Mbongo, Parliament Funkadelic, James Brown, Diblo Dibala and others, are part of their influences. Their sound was launched into the worldwide stage last February by renowned DJ and Producer Daniel Haaksman, whose album “African Fabrics” features Bulldozer in a collection of collaborations.

Bulldozer “comes strong like a bull; sweeping everything away” – Cartel Urbano

“A mixture of guitar-infused power, punk blows, funk emissions, acoustic environments, hypnotic soukous and powerful champeta” - Shock

£8 in advance / £11 on the door
