Los Chinches + Papayera + Novalima + DJs : 7-8 November

Our friends of Movimientos celebrates a decade of latin vibes with a mini festival over two days featuring international guests from Peru - Novalima plus DJ Caution from Madrid and the two of the UK's finest Latin acts Papayera & Los Chinches. Plus a programme of daytime activities with film, talks and more.

Movimientos celebrates a decade of conscious latin vibes in the capital with a weekend double header at Rich Mix featuring two nights of the finest international and local Latin American acts and DJs. On sunday there's the acclaimed and pioneering Afro-Peruvian band Novalima who are jetting in as part of the tour for their new album 'Planetario' presented in association with Como No. Whilst Saturday sees the Afro-Colombian big band sounds of Angelica Lopez's Papayera launching their debut album plus a welcome return for psychedelic tropical sounds of Los Chinches, and to complete the party we welcome Madrid's Cumbia b-boy DJ Caution as well as the original future world funk don and long standing partner Russ Jones. Plus we'll be joining forces with long standing friends at Latinos in London.

To complete the weekend of activities celebrating a decade of Movimientos the pioneering Afro-Peruvian sound system Novalima return for a first London show in 6 years as part of their international tour to coincide with the release of their latest album 'Planetario' released on Brooklyn’s Wonderwheel Recordings.

From their humble start, file-sharing musical ideas and producing their first album in separate countries during the dawn of the internet, Novalima is now a live musical force revered worldwide for breaking boundaries and uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities, and generations. They have created an inspiring movement and revolutionized the music scene in their native Peru by bridging a longstanding divide between the mainstream and the minority Afro-Peruvian community, who have struggled against discrimination and cultural dissolution for generations.

Over the last two years, Novalima created their newest offering, Planetario to be released June 16th on Wonderwheel Recording. The album's name signals Novalima's musical growth and international connections – much of the album was recorded on tour when they collaborated with top local and international musicians. There is a strong connection to Colombia created through a remarkable recording session in Bogota organized by members of La-33 including Sidesteppervocalist Eka Muñoz, Pernett and La Mamba Negra. The album also has offerings from global artists such as Marc de Clive Lowe (UK/NZ), Panko from Ojos de Brujo (Spain), and Kumar (Cuban rapper based in Barcelona).
