Colombian sound artist transforms traditional music

The originally Colombian composer and sound artist Lucrecia Dalt was raised surrounded by the tropical sounds of the bolero, mambo, salsa and merengue. Absorbing all these traditional influences, Dalt manages to give them a hypermodern and adventurous – and very own – impulse. Sometimes she transforms them into music which could easily be the soundtrack of a science fiction movie.

The day after the release of het latest album ¡Ay!, Lucrecia Dalt will present it at our Explore the North festival. Subtle percussion, bongos, congas with soft horns; Dalt’s music feels like a lovely dive into a cosmic swimming pool.
