ISEA2010 RUHR Club | Cumbia Lunatica

Thur 26 August 2010
domicil, Dortmund, 22:00h


A person who has spent one night listening to cumbia music can claim he has been to heaven. Cumbia is a god sent honeybucket from Colombia. Expert in this, Dick El Demasiado has been working on the theme since his visit to La Ceiba in Honduras, one year after the Mitch hurricane, 1998. By now, one century later, he is considered the godfather (godfader) of the experimental, lunatic and digital cumbias, although he never ceases to try and confuse the experts and affiliates.

Festicumex is the formal body of these musical presentations, and bands with very short but intense trajectories are usually the main course. In Dortmund this part will be played by German Federico Roch, Raúl Alberto Meza, Diego Mariano Seoane, Nicolas del Porto, Pedro Buschi and Dick El Demasiado in constantly changing formations!

This is not a music festival, but you will dance, nor is not an anthropological workshop, but you will shift perspectives.

Don't think “Yes, Hip!”, think “Probably True!”

This project is part of the ISEA2010 RUHR Residency Programme.
