JSCA is an up-and-coming artist based in London, originally from Colombia. She draws inspiration from her Latin roots and her vibrant upbringing in London, blending elements of Cumbia, Reggaeton, and Latin Pop with the familiar sounds of Indie pop and R&B influences. She has recently released a new single called ‘Tregua’ where she delves between English and Spanish to create her own unique world. If you like artists like Kali Uchis, FKA Twigs, and Charlotte Dos Santos, check out JSCA's music at Exilio on the 2nd of July.
Sachellys's diverse background has led the singer-songwriter to create a style of music that is equally as unique. The young artist was born in Colombia but raised in London, developing an eclectic music taste due to her parent’s interest in latin music and her siblings interest in modern genres such as R&B and hip-hop. When she began singing herself, this meant she was drawing from popular artists with amazing vocal talent such as Chris Brown and Kali Uchis, but also studying the energetic musings of artists like Grupo Niche and Celia Cruz who could move a listener to their feet and get them dancing. This blend is something Sachellys prides herself on; she can make the record you hear at every club in the city but easily switch gears to create timeless tunes you can play in your car on your ride to work. Her debut single “Could You Be” was released in early 2019 and landed her a spot at a local Pride Festival that year. Her debut EP is set to release in 2022, combining R&B vocalizations with the soul of reggaeton. Sachellys is bringing a sound to the table no other artist can replicate and translating it into a solid fan base that is sure to grow even further, starting with you!

Los Vagos Art
Los Vagos ( Emily Bustos and Jordan Santos ) are a team of artists and designs from London. We specialise in creating bright, colourful and imaginative pieces of work and characters. Our vision has always been to bring life back to the streets and our community, in our more and more busy world we tend to lose our childlike wonder and imagination and get lost in the boring and mundane but when murals are put up it helps break that cycle and makes up appreciate the beauty of art.
We believe that artworks shouldn’t be hidden behind closed doors only for the elites to see but rather for everyone to see one the goal of inspiring them and making a street corner just ever so slightly beautiful.
