Last Saturday we had the opportunity to observe one of the best proposals in the electronic music scene in all Mexico with a mixture of sounds, ranging from Aztec percussions, ocarinas, flutes, synthesizer, voices and a great choreography to the level of Cirque Du Soleil, for over a hour Prehispanica Electronica took the crowd through a journey that went from the Aztec ancestral rituals to a climactic scene with energetic explosions full of contemporary sonorities and enveloping atmospheres.
The amazing performance is run by an amazing dj and producer Alyosha Barreiro + Nok Niuk.
As part of the “2017: Mexico Year in Los Angeles (MXLA2017)” program, on Saturday, September 16 at 8:00 p.m. at the Bell Gardens Veterans Park Prehispanic Electronics (Alyosha Barreiro + Nok Niuk) memorable ritual concert in front of over 5000 people outdoors. In an interview with Barreiro we share some hilights of their concert:
“It was truly an honor to be able to present in such an important city, especially in times of such great political differences. It seems to me that it is time to unite and sympathize with our northern brothers who are going through very difficult times.
It is important to remind them where we come from and where we are going. ”
“Our objective was always clear; to re-identify ourselves as proud Mexicans, to honor our ancestors, to forget for a moment that there is a border created by political ideologies, and especially that in the end, our essence and past unites and identifies us.
Obviously as always, to present a unique show, giving the best of us always trying to create a unforgettable experience ”
On this occasion Prehispanica Electronica invited Karin Burnett aka Afrodita, to be part of this concert, who went on stage in the middle of the show and between prayers in Nahuatl and deep songs, captured the attention of the audience in a dramatical interpreting the passage of souls through Mictlan.
We remember that Aphrodite has a long musical career with her project Aphrodite, the cumbia goddess with whom she has performed in Mexico, USA and Europe continuously.
As usual, Gustavo Cisneros, visual artist of the project generated a unique multimedia world during the concert, giving the final touch to this explosive form.
The artist finished the interview by commenting on his upcoming concerts in Holland, Vienna and Mexico City.
