Movimientos’ Cal Jader brings a unique mix of Latinx music from across the Latin American continent, the diaspora plus international sounds inspired by the region. The show takes in a wide spectrum of the freshest tropical dance floor heat from Afro-Latin beats, Carnival flavours, Hip Hop, Cumbia & Dembow to downtempo Electronica, and explorations of Digital-Folklore and beyond.
Cal Jader is one of the musical activists behind London Latin cultural protagonists Movimientos and co-host of one of London’s finest tropical / global bass parties Love Carnival. With his trademark blend of latin beats, carnival rhythms and fresh global sounds he is helping to soundtrack London’s underground music scene with regular sets across the capital, as well as around the UK and Europe.
He’s also played at clubs and festivals around the globe as far afield as Mexico City, Beirut, Bogota, Kuala Lumpar, Istanbul, and a 10 date tour all around Brazil in Rio, Salvador, Brasilia and at carnival in Recife. In the UK he’s played everywhere from festivals like Bestival and Glastonbury as well as closing WOMAD in Fuerteventura, and has shared stages with world class live acts like Manu Chao, Bomba Estereo, Novalima, and Calle 13 as well as Chico Trujillo and La Yegros. He continues to champion the new generation of producers from Latin American and has played alongside the likes of El Búho, Chancha Via Circuito, DJ Raff, Kaleema and Uji.
