NAHUATL SOUND SYSTEM (Mexico/Australia), THE CAMBODIAN SPACE PROJECT (Cambodia/Australia), KALÀSCIMA (Italy), MZAZA
The stratospheric rise of THE CAMBODIAN SPACE PROJECT has caught those witnessing the spectacle of this cosmic cross-culture rock band as it blasts across the dusty highways of Cambodia by surprise. The Cambodian Space Project is a troupe bonded not only by the diversity of its members’ backgrounds but also by an artistic vision to bridge cultures while exploring new musical frontiers.
KALÀSCIMA performances are full of energy and rhythm from the ancient traditional dance and music of taranta (Salento, southern Italy). Kalàscima’s show comprises of many fascinating instruments such as the mandolin, Irish bouzouki and Calabrian double flutes, along with a vast arrangement of percussion and thrilling vocals. What audiences come to hear is a combination of past and present, traditional and modern.
MZAZAis Pauline Maudy, singing in French, Spanish, and Turkish, weaving a travel story of exquisitely crafted sounds, a unique fusion of influences from the Mediterranean, the Balkans and the Middle-East.
NAHUATL SOUND SYSTEM is a crucial part in the global nu-cumbia movement, pioneering the ‘Aztek style of Dub’ – a clash between the original rhythms of the warrior Mexica culture translated into deep IDM and future bass music.
