Movimientos: Brazilian special

Movimientos: Brazilian special

A unique concoction of cutting edge live Latin acts, documentary film, DJs, visual arts and Latin culture with a different country and theme each month. Between now and June, we explore Colombia, Argentina, Brazil and the Andean Uprising.

Live Music / Rhythms Of The City ft MC Mystro
The 10 year community project of London’s creative jazz stars ‘F-IRE Collective’ – 30 piece Rhythms of the City is the very baddest samba drum squad… they cover anything and everything that can be played on samba drums, including funk, reggae, rock, salsa, and many more. This show features, alongside regular samba mayhem, guest underground Hip Hop star MYSTRO with the dirtiest samba-grime in the country.

"ROTC, a careering, squeaking in-your-face mix that makes you proud to be a Londoner. Visionary stuff." **** Songlines Magazine

Film / Children of the Amazon
A poetic and visually stunning film which looks at the impact of development and deforestation on the Amazon rainforest of western Brazil and specifically the Surui and Negarote tribes and also touches on the assasination of legendary rubber tapper Chico Mendes.
