Movimientos & FLAWA
LA PERLA live
DJs Amancai, Papaoul & Cal Jader
Movimientos is joining forces with FLAWA for a very special summer fiesta featuring a heavy hitting double header of live music from Colombia. Featuring one of our all time favourite groups La Perla with their unique and innovative take on Colombian Caribbean culture with a Bogota twist and a powerful social message. Plus a UK live debut from Killabeatmaker who combines African rhythms like Afrobeats and Amapiano, with South American traditional Indigenous music, all framed within urban and global club sounds.
On the decks a reliable formation of Colombian selector and faithful advocate of the sounds from El Caribe Amancai, Epoka, Worldwide FM and Reprezent Radio trailblazer Papaoul as well as Movimientos’ Cal Jader to keep the dancefloor swelling with the zingy-iest of Afro-latin beats, Cumbia and future global club sounds.
Whilst their joyous dance music celebrates life and ‘la fiesta’ through their powerful lyrics they are taking on the injustices and violence within their country, from talking about the harsh labour conditions of land workers to defending women’s rights & indigenous culture as well as the assassination ecological and social leaders who are fighting for justice and equal rights.
“…tropical drums are a roaring echo that travels through time, sounding a thunderous traditional resistance to contemporary violence”
