Movimientos are delighted to present the launch of Esteban Card’s debut studio album, INELEMENTUM, channeling ancient diasporadic sentiments and traditions from Colombia with a contemporary approach.
One of the rising stars of London’s alternative Latin scene, Esteban Card presents a fresh twist on traditional Colombian music, melding its ancestral drumming with cutting-edge production influenced by his vibrant London environment, weaving together elements of Afro-Colombian Bullerengue and Cumbia, Afrobeat, Reggae, Experimental and Indie in a trance-inducing thought-provoking soundscape. His debut live show at Hootannany Brixton last year put him on the radar with his 8 piece band displaying the traditional Colombian drums and a powerful sound guaranteed to shake your fibres. Supported by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Esteban Card is going from strength to strength - this is just the beginning…
With traditional dance from Somos Chibchas, visuals and live painting from Colombian artists Vane MG and Di Garcia, special guest Holly Holden and DJs all night long this is set to be a great night in celebration of independent contemporary Latin arts in London.
