Movimientos and The Jazz Cafe present a huge double-header fiesta with two explosive talents combining their African and Latin American influences.
The legendary Grupo Lokito effortlessly mix Congolese and Cuban rhythms to sublime effect, creating a modern-day cocktail of two of the great worlds of music. Fusing blistering contemporary Congolese grooves with the fire of Cuban music, the results have audiences dancing in a haze of energy.
With Congolese and Argentinian roots and as the niece of rumba giant Franco, Juanita Euka boasts a unique music palette, fusing her African and Latin heritage to become one of the mainstays in London’s vibrant live music scene. Over the last eight years, she has worked with London Afrobeat Collective, the Cuban fusion band Wara and Latin / Afro big band Animanz and is now starting out on a new, exciting solo career, with an upcoming album on Strut Records.
