Mala Rodriguez is one of the most inventive and popular artists in Latin Hip Hop with a string of awards to her name and a series of ground breaking collaborations with artists like Calle 13 and Nelly Furtado. Her last album Dirty Bailarina took her into a new dimension and won her a Latin Grammy for Best Song for the track No Pidas Perdón. This is a very rare London appearance.

Wara have concocted an epic new musical genre of their own with strong Cuban roots. A hot melting pot of identities, living in London with backgrounds from all over the world: Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Ghana, Congo, Spain and the UK. With contagious, in- your-face vocals from Congolese-Argentinean lead Juanita Euka (niece of legendary Congolese musician Franco), inspired keyboard flourishes from MD Eliane Correa.
