“The Struggle is for Happiness” – Our Cultural Event is Nearing!

Colombian artists and activists invite to combat global despair with the joy of being together! Come to enjoy a night with original live musics!
In an era of rising racism and armed conflicts, we want to oppose resistance by doing what we best do as Latinos: celebrating our identity and our communal values! We are looking forward to welcoming you on the 26th of January at Grand Café Utopie, where the bands Postcolonial Fandango and Barrio Latino will take up their instruments to demonstrate that music can be an antidote against intolerance and aggression.
We have the fortune to count also with the presence of the DJ- Duo Chucho Vinilo and Mize Apocalize, who will be dropping beats of the most selected Afro-Caribbean music an, from classic cult-recordings to the newest revival of Peruvian Psychedelic Cumbia.
About the Ensembles:
Postcolonial Fandango is a Classical (Baroque) Music Ensemble based in the Netherlands, developed by Multi-Instrumentalist Camilo Arias as an Artistic-Research Project at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. The Ensemble proposes an artistic/academic attempt to solve the tensions embodied in the label of Latin American Baroque. By combining Historical Performance Practice, Ethnomusicology and the concepts of Postcolonial Studies, the project consists of the development of a comical music- Ensemble, with its own artistic concept and original fusion-repertoire.
