this year over 2 days, our 4 fantastic stages will showcase the best UK-born,bred and based Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese (Latin) talent expressing diverse genres, as well as exciting international artists.
WHY WE Do IT
Every year we invite musicians, bands, dancers and artists to participate in The LUKAS, where the public and expert judges vote for their favourite latin artists of the year. This is how we discover the wonderful new artists that we take to the wider public.
a Latin festival run by Latinos, showcasing Latin culture in all its breadth and depth; the variety, the diversity, the fusion of genres and ethnicities. OUr audience can expect a classically trained Tango orchestra or reggaeton artists of equally high quality.
THIS IS OUR PLEDGE:
WE DO: Showcase authentic, diverse, quality expressions of Latin music and dance.
WE DON’T: present clichéd, low-quality, diluted forms of Latin artistic genres (as you might see on strictly )
we DO: Use a criteria based on our experience, knowledge and understanding of our cultures to judge their quality: OUR public and our expert judges select the artists
WE DON'T: Allow pundits who don’t understand our culture, to tell us what is cool and what isn’t cool.
WE DO: present our diverse genres to the public within their cultural contexts, allowing their glory and quality to shine
WE DON'T: place our genres out of context, or lump them with other so-called ‘World’ music, so that they are divorced from their roots, diluting their meaning and value.
Supporting hoMegrown latino talent
wE've been showcasing homegrown creativity bursting out of Britain’s UK-Latin community since the early noughties. this year, following our launch of candela records, the Uk's first ever label dedicated to urban latin music, we decided to give this unique london-born genre, fusing grime, reggaeton, afro-beats and more, its own stage. watch this video and you'll see there's no going back. the candela stage is here to stay!
