WHO WE ARE

latinolife 'in the park' is a not-for- profit event, organised by Latinolife - the uk's leading latin media, music and events organisation. For 20 years, we have been producing unique and wide-reaching events, media and music, which develops and showcases latino talent in the UK.

 

in 2023 LatinoLife became the UK's first and only Latina-run National Portfolio Organisation (NPO), joining iconic institutions such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and The Royal Opera House, recognised by the uk government for artistic excellence and funded  to “drive growth in our world leading creative industries.”

WHY latinolife in the park?

 

Every year we invite musicians, bands, dancers and artists to participate in The LUKAS - Europe's only latin entertainment awards  - where the public and expert judges vote for their favourite latin artists of the year. This is how we discover new artists and latinolife in the park is our chance to take  these wonderful new artists to the wider public.

 

OUR pledge

latinolife  showcases quality 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 equal 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 lived xperience, 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 possess this understanding, 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 latin talent

wE've been nurturing homegrown creativity bursting out of Britain’s UK-Latin community since the early noughties, when we began showcasing young talent at our legendary la bomba clubnights at ministry of sound. we now run an open studio where we provide mentoring and free studio time to young artists, develop talent and produce new music. 

in 2021, we launched candela records, the Uk's first ever label dedicated to urban latin music, in partnership with atlantic records (warner). every year we show the best artists of this unique london-born genre, fusing  uk & latin urban sounds - grime, reggaeton, afro-beats and more - on the candela stage featuring exciting collaborations between uk and latin urban artists. our candela sound system - our touring show - takes these exciting artists to festivals around the country.
