Free the sound! After weeks and weeks in lockdown and social distancing, we felt the need to musically hug you by setting free and sharing heart-warming sounds.
Today, together with our favourite London-based party starters at Movimientos and Latin American culture guiding light Sounds and Colours, we will give life to a live streaming session featuring musicians and DJs from Latin America. They will enlighten our and your weekend with their organic and heartfelt music ranging from Andean contemporary folk to cumbia, dub and Latin bass.
Join us on our Facebook page, from 4PM onwards and let’s party like it’s 2019!
We’ll be taking donations on the day to support the musicians & performers in these difficult times who have lost most of their regular income, so any support you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
