SUMMER SOLSTICE PARTY : INTI RAYMI @ Passing Clouds
Friday 21st June
JOIN US at Passing Clouds to celebrate being alive under the same sun!! During the Inca Empire, the Inti Raymi ("Festival of the Sun") was a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honour of the god Inti, one of the most venerated gods in Inca religion. We say let's celebrate life in all its forms with London's best Latin and global artists and live global music to keep your feet dancing and your spirit soaring. Expect packed dancefloors, face-painting, more rum than you can shake a stick at and some indoor sunshine. Guest DJs Rebel Up! from Belguim join the original Movimientos DJ crew Jader and Arias spinning their trademark new and underground Latin beats.
Lokandes, fronted by whirldwind musical maestro Kanti Qena, take the roots of traditional Andean music and intertwine them with psychedelic rock; some call them the "Peruvian Pink Floyd", no word of a lie, they do have the live spirit of a 60/70s psych/prog rock band. Their new sound also reflects contemporary genres such as Reggae, Cumbia, Ska, Jazz, Son, Rumba Folk and Afro-Latin. Lokandes unites musicians and instruments from Peru, Bolivia, Spain, France, China, Chile and the UK, and set their music alongside socially conscious lyrics and a super-tight rhythm section.
Warmi are a new band of talented female musicians, covering traditional Andean and Latin American music and playing original compositions. Warmi was born in October 2011, during an event dedicated to the Cultural Resistance of the Indigenous from the Abya Yala (America in their Native Language). Past shows include London Green Fair, Bolivar Hall and Jamboree. The bands' line-up boasts top female musicians from exceptional London Latin bands Lokandes, Cumbe, Bahareque, Amaru III, Sagrada Coca, Renu & The Revellers. Warmi stands for 'Woman in the Native languages from the Andes Quechua and Aymara'.
Guest DJs Rebel Up! DJs Le Blanc & Seb Cat crew organises the Rebel
Up! Soundclash dance parties in Amsterdam (NL) & Brussels (BE). It's
all about rougher sounds from the global underground…
