Following both the hugely successful New Year’s Eve Party and the Global Local live music showcase in January Movimientos presents a fresh programme of exceptional live Latin music. The nights continue to see some of the finest emerging Latin musicians and artists alongside a programme of documentary films showcasing the important issues affecting the continent.
For February’s event they join forces with Alborada and War on Want to present the exceptional documentary ‘Quien Dijo Miedo’ which explores the popular resistance to the 2009 coup in Honduras, and the repression ordered by the new regime that included the physical removal of the democratically elected President and a number of atrocities and murders committed against protestors which continues to this day. This is followed by a skype Q&A with the film's main protagonist Rene Amador plus contributions from War on Want discussing their project in Honduras.
On the music front Lokandes play a unique brand of Afro-Andean music is spliced with Reggae, Son and Latin Folk complemented by conscious lyrics and truly positive vibe.
