Batmacumba versus Movimientos

10 Nov 2006

After a crazy ninth birthday, Batmacumba is back at the ICA for a head to head to showdown with the Movimientos deejays for a boundary crossing Latin American soundclash. Movimientos have made a name for themselves with their monthly night showcasing DJs, MCs and artists at the forefront of the Latin music scene in London as well as providing a space for independent political documentaries on Latin America.

Deejays Arias & Springfield challenge DJ Cliffy to an old school salsa, boogaloo, ska, mambo, Latin hip hop, reggaeton, Brazilian and boricua beats showdown.

In the cinema from 10.30pm, shorts include:

  • Child Miners, Dir Rodrigo Vazquez, Bolivia/UK 2006 Set in the mountainous region of Llallagua, Bolivia, Vazquez's documentary takes a look at the reality of child miners working in the region.
  • Poles Apart, Dir Ricardo Pires In the city of Belo Horizonte, South-Eastern Brazil, Claudiomiro and Andre represent the two distinct faces caused by social inequality in the country.
