Miguel Colectivo for Atlantico Festival

 In avvicinamento alla prima edizione del festival, Atlantico ospita Miguel Colmenares, venezuelano di base a Londra, fondatore di Colectivo Futuro, un collettivo di artisti, DJs, musicisti, appassionati in genere di diverse forme e mezzi artistici. Dalla loro unione nasce anche un’etichetta, la Olindo Records.

Il mix mette in luce la varietà oltre che la quantità della musica afro-venezuelana, a partire dai leggendari Grupo Madera e Un Solo Pueblo, fino ai suoni contemporanei della Family Atlantica e i Monsalve y Los Forajidos.
È presente anche un field recordings di una delle tante tradizioni di percussioni africane diffuse nella costa caraibica settentrionale, registrata e pubblicata da Oswaldo Lares.
La seconda metà del mix si concentra su salsa e ritmi afro-cubani che risuonano ai giorni nostri nei barrios di Caracas.

Colectivo Futuro is a dedicated cultural node where art forms and people converge. Formed by a collective of artists, DJs, musicians, and to put it simply people who have an appreciation for various artistic mediums and a given lifestyle associated with creative enterprises.
Our aim is to bring exposure to the work of creatives from all parts, whether visual or audible, who are devoted to innovating their medium, or bringing a new light on the traditional. We also launched a record label in 2017 called Olindo Records

For the mix I wanted to shed some light on the quality and variety of afro-venezuelan music. From the more rootsy drums of the legendary Grupo Madera (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16ukyR8RTb4) and Un Solo Pueblo to more contemporary sounds by Family Atlantica and Monsalve y Los Forajidos. There’s also a field recording recorded and released by Oswaldo Lares of one of the many African drum traditions spread across the northern Caribbean coast of the country; his archive is a great gateway for anyone trying to learn more about our music (http://archivolares.org/).
The second half of the mix focuses on salsa and afro-cuban rhythms, which to this day resonate loudly in the barrios of Caracas.
