Music is a collaborative art. In some ways all art forms are in the end, but in popular music, this fact is especially relevant. His true goal is to unite us, forgetting ourselves for a moment and feeling part of a whole that screams, dances and sings in communion.
This was the year of VVV [Trippin'you] . His second album ' Escama ' came after four years making a call on the road throughout the peninsula. The good reception of the launch was unexpectedly cut short this year where we all lost and many lost everything.
At the beginning of December ten artists including names like Pedro LaDroga , $kyhook or Depression Sonora revisited ' Escama' in ' Los Bailes Perdidos (Escama Remixes) ' from different angles to pay tribute not only to an album, which like so many others, could not be presented live, but to the community that makes it possible for the band exists. The last point of this tribute is completed in an obituary with the participation of more than 50 collaborators, including photographers, fans, musicians, programmers, writers and thinkers in a book that today sees the light.
Edited and designed by CONJURO and published by Helsinkipro , the physical format of ' Los Bailes Perdidos' consists of more than 300 pages with photos, texts and statements from all the collaborators who remember what any night before the pandemic was like. When there was the possibility of sharing, laughing, crying, sweating, screaming, dancing and ultimately, being, in the simplest meaning of the word. When the music blared out loud and the vibrations from the speakers managed to elevate us to the point of collective catharsis and clean up the rough edges of a hard work week.
It has been created by those who dance, those who capture those dances forever with their snapshots, those who set the rhythm of the dancers with their music, those who run and make possible the spaces of resilience, those who bring the speakers and tables of mixtures from rehearsal premises on the outskirts of cities, those who think us. The community, us. It is this feeling of belonging where many of us find the reason for our existence.
