Official London Screening of Esperando el Tsunami + Music from Cumbé

By 22 February, 2012

At the end of last year we held a small private screening of Esperando el Tsunami, a new film from Vincent Moon and Lulacruza logging a musical journey across Colombia. Now, with our good friends Movimientos, we will be holding an official screening of the film at Rich Mix in London (followed by great Afro-Colombian music from Cumbé). Prepare yourself for a truly original journey into Latin America!

Esperando el Tsunami documents TransFolk duo Lulacruza’s journey across Colombia with the celebrated independent film-maker Vincent Moon. The idea behind their journey was to discover Colombia, and especially the music, documenting that experience in the form of a new album and a film that they composed and created on the road.

The screening will be complimented by a live performance from Cumbé one of the hottest new bands of London’s Latin American music scene. They play the finest Tropical and Afro-Colombian dance music and rhythms like Cumbia, Mapalé, Porro and Bullerengue are given a fresh London twist! Plus the show includes traditional costumes and dance to create an unforgettable spectacle!
