Born in 2008 out of a desire to build bridges between musical scenes from both hemispheres, Groovalizacion is a collective of DJs, journalists and cultural activists from all over the world whose podcasts both highlight the latest worldwide trends of urban music and explore their local roots - whether they are Afro-Latin, Mediterranean or from other regions of the world. The result is a modern approach sensitive to cultural fusions and experimentation. Groovalizacion’s programs are produced in four languages : Spanish, French, Portuguese and English.

Groovalizacion also specializes in programming and producing musical events. By organizing concerts, club events and programming festivals, the Groovalizacion crew has worked in Ireland, France, Belgium, Portugal, Mali, Turkey, Argentina… Groovalizacion events have included the Button Factory (Dublin), La Dame de Canton (Paris), Musicbox (Lisbon), La Tentation (Brussels), De Nieuwe Anita (Amsterdam), La Vecinda (Buenos Aires), Babylon (Istanbul) or Blonba (Bamako)… Groovalizacion team has also worked with World Cultures Festival in Ireland, FMM Sines festival in Portugal, with institutions such as Instituto Cervantes and with professional fair trades such as Womex or Babelmed.
