Voodoo Love Orchestra have us swaying to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America and Africa with infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music. This globe-trotting ensemble straddles a whole range of pan-Atlantic sounds: Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, Nigerian Afrobeat, Jamaican Ska and Ghanaian Highlife.
Mamanollora are the new queens and kings of skanking Latin Funk, Spanish Rumba, Reggae and Swing…featuring members of Wara and Jardares Por Fuera.
They Say Jump are a high jumping, skilled and frenzied musical ride with intricate, tight arrangements, They Say Jump combine influences from Latin America and the Caribbean islands - a carnival of sound from Latin to Reggae and Ska. Bring it!
Movimientos DJs keep the party jumping in between live sets with their irrepressible mix of firing Latin beats, carnival rhythms and tropical bass
