On its 16th year, La Linea Festival, has become a highlight for Latin Music lovers throughout the UK. Bringing Latin America’s cutting edge musicians to the capital from every corner and genre you can think of.
This year, the festival partners up with Cuba’s Manana to bring a night of electronic mayhem to Pickle Factory in Dalston with Iranian-Cuban duo Ariwo. Then the festival takes a turn with a sold out show by Portugal’s finest singer Ana Moura followed by Gilles Peterson golden girl and the voice of young Cuban jazz: Dayme Arocena.
#WahacaMusic lovers will particularly enjoy nu-cumbia maestra La Yegros from Argentina on her London debut with Spain’s Gizmo Varillas opening the night and Chile’s finest cumbia big band Chico Trujillo hitting Camden’s Electric Ballroom.
Hip hop is represented by Brazil’s most renowned urban poet Criolo, who will also take to the UK on tour and Portugal’s Baloji supporting the night at Koko.
And last but not least, US-Mexican favourites Calexico return to La Linea for a very special show at the Barbican Centre and to close La Linea we welcome Mexican-French-Chilean Adanowsky with his new project Adan & Xavi y los Imanes.
