Movimentos Summer Fiesta @ Passing Clouds

Movimientos is back with a special international guest: Simja Dujov (Argentina) with support from UK’s Gypsy Butter. It’s Summer! So come and get hot & sweaty at Passing Clouds.

Following our jam-packed Spring Fiesta at Passing Clouds and two Love Carnivals at Bussey Building, Movimientos are back again with a stellar line up for:


With top international act from direct from Buenos Aires Simja Dujov

Dujov brings his troupe of Argentinian musical mavericks to blast you with a blend of Latin Cumbia, Balkan chords, Jewish music and Cuarteto. Perfect for getting into trance on the dance floor. Energy and cheerfulness into the party.
A happy soul in Argentina blends sounds of the world.” - Forward

And to Launch their New EP, Gypsy Butter bring an eclectic mix of flamenco, jazz, latin, and gypsy music with upbeat and contagious rhythms that are guaranteed to draw a crowd. Expect powerful sax solos and driving guitar riffs complemented by accordion, big bass lines and whimsical bi-lingual vocals that speak of romance in the city and love spurned.

Keeping the dancefloor jumpin’ in between Movimientos are happy to welcome:
