Movimientos presents another funky tropical fiesta… this time welcoming Tropical Pressure Festival for their London launch party. Get ready for a fiery blend of African and Latin rhythms, roaring brass, funky bass and a psychedelic accordion!
AFLA SACKEY & AFRIK BAWANTU, fronted by Ghanaian composer, conductor and master percussionist Afla Sackey, Afrik Bawantu’s rhythm-driven, dance-inducing fusion compositions melt together highlife from West African percussion with funk and rock, calling for consciousness and togetherness in times of division and restlessness.The uplifting rhythm section in harmony with roaring brass, accompanied by high-powered bass lines, creates a powerful Afro-Funk sound with a passion that drives audiences to the dance floors.
POLLITO BOOGALOO, raw Afro-Colombian roots music drawing from classic 60s Cumbia, Vallenato and Puya, mixing in a little electro/dub and with a sprinkling of Haitian voodoo! Fronted by charismatic Colombian singer Rafael Berrio and with their hypnotic Latin rhythms, psychedelic accordion and bubbling bass lines, they infect every party with their hot rum-soaked Caribbean vibes.
TROPICAL PRESSURE DJs: DJ BOBBY SOUL, whose tropical, Latin sets are always imbibed with buckets full of soul, and COUNTRYMAN, reaching deep into African and Jamaican roots music, alongside fresh dub-plates from the most cutting edge studios.
