To celebrate it's first official release on DVD by Strut Records / Fania, Movimientos joins forces with Shook magazine and Strut Records to present an exclusive West London screening of the classic NY Salsa film "Our Latin Thing" (Cosa Nuestra). The film directed by Oscar winner Leon Gast (When We Were Kings), is simply the greatest salsa documentary ever made.

To fire up the party after Movimientos is joined by one of London's most prominent salsa bands Palenke Trio who will be dropping in a selection of Fania classics into their set. Plus special guest DJ Vince Vella fresh from performing with Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura Band, with his own productions featuring on the new album.

Our Latin Thing (Cosa Nuestra)
What Wild Style did for hip-hop, a decade earlier Our Latin Thing did for salsa. In the early 1970s, a group of musicians were about to take salsa music to the four corners of the globe – The Fania All-Stars. Centred around an incendiary gig at one of promoter Ralph Mercado’s fantastically popular Thursday night jams at the Cheetah in New York in August 1971, Our Latin Thing documents the raw Nu Yorican Latin sound at its zenith.

Starring certified legends including Willie Colon, Ray Barretto and “El Cantante” Hector Lavoe and directed by Oscar-winner Leon Gast (When We Were Kings), the footage is spliced with atmospheric street scenes on rubbish-filled stoops and crumbling bodegas in Spanish Harlem, documenting a city on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
