Caballo The Mothafu Kings – Malando # Tuki Bass
by latinoresiste

Following the path opened by Yirbin, Pocz & Pacheko in terms of Tuki,which has been one the most ghetto genres in South America, normally banned by media and “posh” people, it grew basically out of sight from the conventional media.
Tuki, in case you haven’t heard about it, it’s a variation of “Changa” which basically is a venezuelan slang word from the 90s that means “House music”.The people that danced to this music and partied to it were called “waperos” (pronounced “wape-ross”). The word came from “PUMP UP THE JAM” (people would understand the lyrics as “pump wapejam, wape-ross, wape-ross, wap wape…”). So the Wapero fashion was huge. Caballo The Mothafu Kings weiterlesen

Unsuk Chin – composer in residence beim
Festival und der Internationalen Ensemble Modern Akademie

In einer dezidiert emotionsbeladenen Sprache bringt sie ihr eigenes Credo zum Komponieren in unserer Gegenwart auf den Punkt. 19th KLANGSPUREN SCHWAZ TIROL weiterlesen
