No Cumbia Without Forest 




2020
The video installation constructs an experience that explores the relationship between dry tropical forest and the music of Cumbia, a caribbean rythm born in Colombia.  The music of the Caribbean region, such as cumbia, porro, gaita and bullerengue are closely related to the landscape, as the interments come from the forest: cactus wood, beeswax, duck feather make the gaita flute, totumo and capacho seeds for the maracas, and the banco wood for the Caribbeandrums: the llamador, the alegre, and the tambora.
