Sometimes you get to collaborate in the most amazing projects! A couple of months back, the Norton Museum reached out to us asking to use our new music for one of their new animated video installations. Our album "Waqaypa: Sonidos del Alma Xauxa", Jose Francisco Borges' woodcut illustrations, and Eduardo Galeano's "Walking Words" were given to the incredibly talented Brazilian artist- Vinicius Sanchez VICO. This is the resulting work. It is part of the ongoing exhibition " The body says I am a Fiesta: The Figure in Latin American Art" at the Norton Museum of Art, in West Palm Beach, FL . This participatory installation space will run from Oct. 5 to March 3, 2020. https://www.norton.org/exhibitions/the-body-says-i-am-a-fiesta-the-figure-in-latin-american-art
In this excerpt you hear our track "Bohemio Soy" composed by our uncle José Bonilla Peña.
