Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

The Silly Tang (UK/FR – Madrid)
The Silly Tang has been ripping parties for the last 5 years all accross the UK channel and into latino spheres. Playing alongside names such and Randall and J-Man in the Jungle music scene and rocking up some Gypsy Folk next to names such as Balkan Hotsteppers or Innamorati. He has now settled to live tangly in Madrid, Spain to start continue producing more delightful tangoloid sounds, between dub, cumbia and ancestral latino folklore. He has released dubby cumbia tunes on Andalucian label Caballito and on Chilean label Regional. Also he’s part of the La Selva crew known for their tropical sweaty sounds.

Mr Orange (Lowup, Bxl)
a Brussels based music aficionado and founder of both the infamous Los Hermanos Brothers and Lowup. His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja. Groovy tropicalism with a pinch of the unexpected and some tongue-in-cheek humour. Good music is timeless.

Muevelo has finally landed in Brussels, this is their 1st party and surely not the last! 

The party originally hails from Paris, with monthly residences in venues such as l’Alimentation Générale or l’International and always a flurry of special guests from Latin America & elsewhere. The parties specialise in furious *tropical* music, the biggest shakers from Latin America, the Caribbean & beyond.

Rebel Up!, Max le Daron, Grandpamini, Pedrolito et MC C-Imperatriz will put the dancefloor on fire with Reggaeton, Merengue, Moombahton, Cumbia, Dancehall, Tropical Bass and more.
Heat allover, that’s MUEVELO mami ! Ya tu sabes.
