La Línea, the Latin Music Festival, returns for 2012
The celebration of the best of contemporary Latin music takes over a range of venues in April, tickets on sale now
First held in 2001, the London Latin Music festival, or La Línea, has become an annual fixture in the spring diary, bringing together some of the most exciting names in Latin music today and expanded beyond the capital to take in shows at a clutch of national venues.
La Linea 2012 kicks off with a show from Madredeus at London's Barbican on 16th April. Madredeus, led by Pedro Ayres Magalhãesm, return to the live scene after a six-year hiatus, galvanised by the exciting new voice of Beatriz Nunes. The one-off show will include a special selection from the band's influential back catalogue. Tickets are £15.
Céu, one of the most exciting and successful female artists to have emerged from Brazil in recent times, is next up with a series of gigs beginning in Bristol on 18th April, followed by dates in London, Manchester, Gateshead and more. The chart-topping 'electrotropical' star, the best-selling Brazilian musician ever in the UK, will be supported by fellow countryman, and rising pop-funk star, Curumin. Prices vary by venue, starting at £12.50 (for Manchester).
Other highlights include Roberto Pla at Islington Town Hall on 21st April (£20) and the Afro-Cuban All-Stars at the Barbican on 25th April (£15). In addition, the Venezuelan Embassy hosts Morgan Szymanski and Amaral plays the HMV Forum in Kentish Town on 27th April, while Che Sudaka plays Shoreditch the same night.
