Co-presented with Mexico Now
In celebration of the 20th edition of Mexico Now, WMI co-presents an eclectic showcase that features world-class, multi-award-winning musicians whose unique ensemble sounds are inspired by Mexican traditions, each putting their own, innovative stamp on those traditions.
Ampersan combines Mexican folklore and poetry with electronic elements, resulting in a hybrid-crossover approach to connecting Mexican soundscapes with more modern sonic ideas.
Echoes in Proximity, is a recent project by Carlo Nicolau and Juan Cristóbal Perez Grobet, delivering an experimental ambient-jazz approach with prominent bass, violin, piano, and drum arrangements.
Additionally, the project SHIFT – Antonio Sánchez & Bad Hombre with Thana Alexa, BIGYUKI & Lex Sadler explores and deconstructs language and voice as a source of rhythm, generating an innovative and unique sound.
The IMPROVISATIONS series features artists referencing their own musical and cultural traditions in a collaborative and improvisational form.
