About the Event

After an unbelievable SOLD OUT show for their first ever collaboration, 'CANDELA VIVA' and 'BONITA' are back with the inaguration of their new night 'CANDELITA'

Both platforms were founded by pioneering Latinx Artists, producers and curators who are passionate about pushing forward a new Latinx movement, one that until now has been bubbling under the surface of London's vibrant night life. Now the time has come for them to unite and create a vibe you really won't find anywhere else in London.

The live music will be headed up by The Bonita House Band aka 'PUNTO SABOR' and some very special guests, alongside support from distinguishable up-and-coming collective 'La Rasa'. CANDELITA residents Bushbby, Alma De La Selva & Desta French will each be behind the decks, bringing you the best of Latin across all genres - from the 70's golden era of Salsa to modern day Cumbia, Electronica & Reggaeton.

Joining us at The Post Bar on the 30th April are...

The Bonita House Band aka PUNTO SABOR

Our very own house band is muscially directed by British-born Ecuadorian bassist and composer Lenny Sampedro and will be showcasing a selection of experimental renditions of salsa and cumbia classics you know and love, with a very special twist, including a guest performance by Desta French.

LA RASA (Live)

Standing out from the crowd, La Rasa is a collective that wear their heart and thoughts on their sleeve. Founded by 3 friends OffBaal, Moises, and Leandro who each inject their own spin on progressive Latinx culture - a mutual punk-like reaction to the concept of single genres, and the over-glamorized perception that most Latinos in the U.K. showcase in their topics and aesthetics. These guys are raw and wreckless in their creative decisions, and have been releasing some cheeky snippets of songs that are nothing like what we’ve heard before! It’s just the beginning for these guys and we are very happy to have them here for the first official Candelita event!



CXLI, the Colombian-rooted, South London-based Producer / DJ brother duo, formulate Latin inspired percussive tracks. Musical influences span a global variety, ranging from the faster paced Afro-House, UK Funky and Dembow, to the slower Reggaeton and Dancehall. Their Afro-Latino heritage can be felt in their productions, packaged together with their UK ties to culminate a sound unique to themselves. Gaining radio support from the likes of Toddla T, Jamz Supernova, Jeremiah Asiamah, Marcus Nasty and more, CXLI have set themselves a solid foundation in the UK circuit.
