Salsa with everything

Most Londoners are completely unaware of it, but this Sunday the capital is hosting the biggest free Latin American carnival in Europe. Carnaval del Pueblo will take place in Southwark's Burgess Park ( It's just like the one in Rio, only slightly smaller and probably more drizzly.
There will be a procession of floats crammed with scantily clad, bottom-shaking lovelies; three stages showcasing everything from sharp-suited salsa singers to swaggering Cuban rappers, Latin heavy metal and Bolivian dancers; stalls groaning with enchiladas and sickly sweet arequipe. This year, the star attraction is Colombian singer Joe Arroyo; in previous years, salsa legends including Wille Colon and Oscar de Leon have made guest appearances.
