Let’s listen to the natural rhythms. Let’s prepare for the longest night of the year.
Come join us to celebrate another cycle of the Sun, the NEW YEAR celebration of the natives of Abya Yala (aka Latin America) and beyond.
One of the most transcendental celebrations of annual natural cycles: We Tripantu / Inti Raymi, has roots thousands of years ago. It represents the rebirth of the Sun, an opportunity for a new beginning for all life forms. That is why it still is the most sacred ceremony of the Mapuche, Aymara, Quechua, and other ethnic groups from the Andes.
This time we have the honour to host an international artist from Chile, Rodrigo Gallardo. His music pioneered a global ethnic electronic movement that rediscovered ancient ritualistic rhythms and put them on the global electronic map for all of us to dance to.
Alongside Rodrigo, we will have a support act by SunSeeds, a perfect match for the organic, bass-driven and groovy music we have prepared for this celebration.
To complete the lineup we will have two ISU TAKI resident DJs, Cuerpo Negro and Otorongo, to play some of the most exquisite tunes Latin American ethno-organica/folktronica producers have released in the last few years. Infused with ancient melodies and powerful percussions, including -as usual- some Afro-Latin beats to make you shake it!
Inti Raymi / We Tripantu featuring RODRIGO GALLARDO is proudly presented by ISU TAKI, as part of MAV’s NEWPRINT2 program, as supported by On The Road Again, a Victorian Government initiative to bring live music back across the state, and Australia Council for the Arts.
