La Linea Festival 15: The London Latin Music Festival

La Linea, the London Latin Music Festival, kicks off in the capital next week featuring performances from Ana Tijoux, Buika and Plaza Francia and a celebration of Mexico

Launched by ¡Como No! in 2001, La Linea celebrates its 15th year with a sprinkling of chilli and mescal, as the official Year of Mexico in the UK gets into full swing. Aside from the Morrissey madness of Mexrrissey, there will also be a Mexican-flavoured electronica with Mextronica and Anglo-Mexican classical music from Morgan Szymanski & Alejandro Escuer.

La Linea begins with Oscar-winning Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler on April 21 at Union Chapel. Plaza Francia – the trio that sees Eduardo Makaroff & Christoph Müller of Gotan Project join forces with French pop powerhouse Catherine Ringer – will head to KOKO on April 23. Flamenco singer Buika returns after her sold-out 2013 La Linea show, while the South American hip-hop scene is well-represented by Chile’s Ana Tijoux and Brazilian MC Emicida.
