Event description
Dance party driven by cumbia music, live jamming, art installations, and multimedia experiments. Special *WINTER* edition!

About this Event

RHIZOMA is an intention to create a magical portal into an altered time and space. Driven by cumbia music and a passion for multimedia experimentation, this is a seasonal platform where spontaneous creative combustion happens. Change up the rhythm of ordinary dance events by letting go of the habitual and energizing the spirit.

Costumes are always wildly encouraged, but not mandatory!

Join us for a night of lively chaos woven from the soil of cumbia, participatory soundscaping (instruments welcome!), projected media, and light installations.

$5 Advance (limited quantities!) or $10 at the door.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

FEATURING:

Dauri Cems: Cosmic Cumbia - Cumbia is a whimsical genre that has found its different interpretations throughout Latin America. From Mexico to Brazil, artists have created their own version of cumbia based on their cultural soundscapes. I will be playing different cumbias (old and new) and bringing those magic vibes into the dancefloor.

Soundscaping hosted by Bagat (@Adam Bagat) - A soulful jam built around organic connection, free flowing creativity, strange morphing textures, and cathartic expression. Not restricted to a single genre or style, and no level of previous musical experience required. We invite you to bring your own instruments to broaden the sonic palette. While the goal is to explore and liberate your sonic imagination, we do emphasize active listening and mutual respect, in order to stay connected within whatever soundscape we build together.

Live visual art by Amrita Virdi! Artist's statement below:

"My experiments in art making have led me to explore different ways of combining paint and collage to create images that are whole and complete like the spectrum of colours in visible light. I am interested in how our world is saturated by colour; I obsess over every soft hue of yellow and each shade of potent deep blue. Each colour evokes a sense of feeling and this fascination, encourages me to mix colours with the awareness that certain colour combinations can stimulate a range of responses from an inner sense of peace through to distress.

After I paint the background I often use different methods to place images onto the canvas. The images are stripped from their cultural or advertising content and placed into their new homes. The repurposed images work beside each other and with the background to complicate our ideas and perceptions of our work-a-day realities. The combination of cursive paint and found images are windows into my conditional perceptions of the social worlds I move through. As I continue to create paintings with layers of how I perceive a limitless universe, by adding my own struggles, pain, love, and laughter, which through your eyes will change to become something different."
