Movimientos welcomes JM y Juanin & Los Crack del Puerto to the Vortex for their debut London show! Coming all the way from Chile these guys give their classic sound a new life.
Juanin—who will turn 80 this year—began performing the hits of the day in 1955, and continues to play the same classic boleros, tangos, vals peruanos, and cuecas to a new generation that is just discovering the vintage gems. Every Sunday afternoon in the mythical Quinta de Los Nuñez, he is joined by JM—his youthful cousin, who turns 73 in October—and the rest of the Cracks del Puerto as they run through a repertoire of songs that range from tear-jerking boleros of lost love to everybody-up-and-dance cuecas extolling the virtues of drinking too much wine on never ending nights in the hills of Valparaiso.
VORTEX FUNDRAISING T-SHIRTS:
March 2 2018 two iconic musicians and old friends Dave Holland and Evan Parker joined forces in a fundraiser to show, as well as give their support to the Vortex Jazz Club – a fine institution that has help many a musician at the start of their career. The club has existed without any core funding after its establishment by founder David Mossman over twenty-five years ago. The club needs financial help to keep its operations going. We hope you will show your support by taking out a membership, coming to gigs or donating. You can make a donation by clicking the “donate” tab. We also have some new fundraising T-shirts with a fab design that was commissioned by Tim Berne (Snake Oil) with graphics by Steve Byramn.
