About the event

A Free open air concert, celebrating the freshest Latin sounds London has to offer courtesy of Candela Records. The newly established label is at the heart of a bubbling scene that fuses the city’s unique urban electronics with more traditional sounds from the Latin Caribbean and beyond. Teaming up with Atlantic Records UK, the label is set to take future UK-Latin talent onto the global stage – and you can hear it all here first with 5 of the next ones-to-watch live on stage:

Angelo Flow Bringing his urban Latin essence to the UK scene, while London influences give his own brand of reggaeton a unique twist.

Clara Hurtado A totally original mashup of drill, afro Brazilian percussion and Latino melodies – enhanced by her soulful and clean vocals, encapsulating a new Latin-London sound.

Guala A gifted lyricist at ease rapping in both Spanish and English, Guala fuses hip hop, reggaeton, grime, and afro-swing.

Rene Alvarez and his Afro-Cuban Funk Project The award-winning singer and musician brings together the sound of his Afro-Cuban roots with North American funk.

The London Latin All Stars A selection of the UK’s most accomplished Latin musicians bring years of expertise and swing to the evening.
