Day and time
Auditorium La Pedrera
Activity at La Pedrera:
We end this year’s PedreraArtlab with an extraordinary session together with the D’A Film Festival–Barcelona. A show with music and the images of Baiuca, mixing traditional Galician music and electronica. An original concert in which traditional/organic music is combined with live projections.
Can a drum machine dance to the rhythm of a Muiñeira? Are there points in common between an aturuxo (traditional Galician cry) and a clubbing session? Can the rhythms of the day before yesterday sound like those of the day after tomorrow? Is there space for Galician folk music to break into the territories of the musical avantgarde? The Rías Baixas are our Amazon.
Baiuca is a new project led by Alejandro Guillán, in which he manages to combine the most advanced avantgarde electronic music and the wildest, purest roots of his native Galicia. A new neotraditionalist beginning grounded in his roots but connecting with the most advanced trends in electronic music, it is as much about resignifying traditional symbols, bringing them closer to modern times, as it is about making cultural and political claims.
