LasKumbia
Queers

The powerful band from Buenos Aires has been touring Europe for over 10 years – always seducing us with their cocktail of cumbia, rock, and hip hop, with critical and reflective lyrics that talk about fun, love and it’s opposite, and their passion for creative leisure and dance. Their latest album “La oscuridad bailable” remains loyal to the Cumbia, but also walks on new paths, experimenting with more electronical sounds. The album is a tightrope walk between personal issues and emotional matters and at the same time a harsh denouncement of the actual neoliberal Argentinian politics.

“The spectacular beats promise change – here and now. But at the same time, the Cumbia rhythm keeps everything balanced and seductive.” (SPEX)

“Kumbia Queers not only masterfully wove harder edge rhythms and danceable grooves, but they also did it with undeniable showmanship. There’s a little bit of a musical cultural shock when you first see the punk-rock clad women suddenly synchronize their dance moves on stage—cumbia style. There was head banging and hip swaying. It’s not your grandmother’s cumbia.”

The story goes back to the year 2007 where these musicians got bored of the punk rock scene, and decided to do something completely different: Cumbia. What started out as something just for fun, led eventually to the formation of Kumbia Queers.

They describe their style as 1000% Tropi Punk – a wild mixture of Afro-Cuban and Latin American Cumbia influences, queerness and punk spirit. At a time when the electronic and world music scenes from New York to Europe are in the process of discovering Cumbia music, the chicas are reinterpreting Latin American heart-ache and macho posturings, bringing fun and politics together in their own wild style.

Booking worldwide except Latin America.

Mal
Élevé

Mal Élevé is one of the former singers of Irie Révoltés, who toured across Europe for over 17 years performing in 24 countries, leaving the stage in 2017 with a farewell tour with over 60,000 visitors.
Now on the road as a solo artist, Mal Élevé is far more than a musician who spits out his french and german rhymes at a dizzying breakneck pace to the base of dancehall, punk, reggae or hiphop – he is a musical fighter for solidarity and a world without inequality.

Just in time for the Covid19 caused “cultural lockdown” Mal Élevé released his first album “Résistance mondiale” and hit the German longplay charts right away at number 15. So the release tour got postponed and we cross our fingers to see Mal Élevé and his great band in autumn 2021 on the stages across Europe!

NOMI
ELEKTRA

80’s sound meets dark techno – beautiful and unsightly. Melodies like splashes of paint on rough concrete. A touch of Darkwave from the 80’s with the danceability and hardness of the current Berlin techno are merged in a live performance with analogue hardware gear. Nomi Elektra, composer, live performer and music producer has created her unique techno sound.

She played in several clubs in and around Berlin, Germany like Mensch Meier, About Blank, Eschschloraque and has performed on bigger festivals like Artlake Festival, Fusion Festival & AT.Tension – just to name some of the bigger ones.
In cooperation with ‘Guts Pie Earshot’ and her former project ‘Aino Nomi’ she produced the soundtrack to the movie “Deckname Jenny“. Published by the Leipzig based Label “Major Label” in March 2018.
