Jorge Drexler

After playing an incredible show at last year’s La Linea festival in London, Uruguayan musical icon Jorge Drexler is back for more with a show supported by Brazilian chanteuse Dom La Nena, whose second album Ela was one of our favourites of last year.

Drexler, who first came to the attention of a wider audience when his Oscar-winning song “Al Otro Lado del Río” featured in the movie The Motorcycle Diaries, will bring his full band to the UK for the first time, with a show blending traditional Uruguayan song form, Latin rhythms, bossa nova, pop, jazz and electronic music, as well as the more rhythmic numbers that he showcased on his last release, Bailar En La Cueva.
