ALMA DE LA SELVA
Santiago Morales aka Alma De La Selva is a Colombian producer, record collector & percussionist. Making a name for himself amongst various UK underground scenes, from Hip-Hop to Jazz and Latinx circles, his approach to production is original and his connection to nature and the motherland is palpable in his work. It is a spiritual and contemplative search that travels through water based sonic ambiences, to tracks that bounce over bass lines, from indigenous chants and rainsticks, to ritual dances around fire. Elements of rap, jazz, latin, psychodelia, and more make De La Selva a unique sonic experience from its detail and spiritual impact.
Bushbby is a London born and based Colombian DJ, artist, producer and event promoter who explores the sounds and roots of Latin American music.
Since 2019, she has quickly established herself as one of London’s Latin music scene’s torchbearers, showcasing an explosive blend of Dancehall, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Champeta and Dembow, inspired by the Colombian-Caribbean and UK sound systems she grew up around.
