Movimientos: X-Planet in the studio

Welcoming the Cuban-UK connection of X Planet into the studio to play two acoustic tracks live and talk about their album Xistence recorded last year in Santiago De Cuba. Mixing Holly Holden’s soulful vocals and Alain Garcia’s Cuban hip hop verses the band create a new and startlingly original fusion of soul and blues with a distinct caribbean flavour.

Cal drops another first play from the Wara album amongst a host of Cuba themed tracks including other London based acts Afro-Cuban beats from Sunlightsquare and Moombahton from Flowsnatcha. Plus music from Miami Afro-Cuban funk band Palo, Toronto based Ogguere and Cuba’s biggest Timba act Habana D’Primera ahead of their debut UK show at La Linea Festival.
