BOGOTA 07 Venex & Astronafrica[WEDNESDAY – 20.01.2016]
A sonic journey featuring afro-roots and psychedelic music from Colombia, Brazil and beyond.
Venex and Astronafrica will go deep in the crates bringing the b sides and obscure wax from Caribbean Colombia, Cartagena, Brazil and some Jamaican gems. From there they will take us all the way to the modern electronic music from Latin America and its heavy influence of transcontinental sounds.
They will bring an eclectic an unpretentious mix, where the old-school meets slow techno and broken beats, deeply infused into Latin rhythms and psychedelic tropicalismo.
With roots from “el Caribe de Colombia”, bringing a heavy dose of beat driven music infused with afro-latin and electronic sounds from around the world. Venex musical journey starts in the Caribbean city of Cartagena; a melting pot of cultures, colours and sounds. With a classical music education background and a creative/musical mother, he started building his taste by embracing all types of music. Over the past 15 years he has been able to share music with crowds across Miami, Detroit, New York, Washington DC, Bogota, Cartagena and Sydney.
With Brazil and Australia as a daily music inspiration, Astronafrica embraces the abundance of styles focusing on the rich spectrum of percussive and steady hypnotic rhythms from regional afro-infused grooves to funk, disco, and electronic music.
