Orkesta Mendoza, António Zambujo and Totó La Momposina are set to appear at this year’s La Linea Festival in London

The London Latin Music Festival, La Linea, founded by ¡Como No! has built a firm reputation as one of the world’s most unique celebrations of South American music since its inception in 2001. The annual event returns for its 17th year this April, hosting an eclectic range of artists in a number of venues spread out across the capital.

The festival will feature the fiery Orkesta Mendoza, who will bring their unique cultural fusion of cumbia, mambo, indie and rock’n’roll to Rich Mix on April 21. Portuguese singer and guitarist António Zambujo is also set to make a welcome return to La Linea, bringing the Chico Buarque songbook to London for the first time; catch him at Cadogan Hall on April 21. The legendary Totó La Momposina will also take to the stage at Cadogan Hall on April 28 in a rare UK appearance, representing the music of Columbia’s Caribbean coastline.

La Linea will take place between April 18-29 2017.
