Lulacruza USA Summer Tour 2015
Journey through space and time with LULACRUZA, the South American duo boldly embracing the intersection of electronic and folk music traditions as they head out on a 18-city summer 2015 tour through the United States. Traversing the jungles and mountains of South America, Lulacruza performances entrance like a shamanic ritual inviting all to “delve into deeper waters”, leaving ripples in your core.
This is a rare opportunity to catch Lulacruza while they are in the United States. Hailing from Colombia and Argentina, their raw performances have garnered a reputation for transporting audiences with their intimate, meditative qualities. Heavily informed by South American ritual and folklore, Lulacruza masterfully tread the line between electronic and acoustic, ancient and avant-garde. The duo play South American indigenous instruments like the Colombian cuatro, charango and bombo legüero and utilize electronic processing and sequencing, complemented by songbird Alejandra’s powerful, stirring vocals.
The announcement of Lulacruza’s tour follows critical acclaim for the duo from Huffington Post, who says “Orcas is a revelation. The music of Lulacruza can be heard in the wind that whispers in your ears, seen in the undulating trees and felt in the cadence of water”, Rolling Stone who says “Lulacruza bring together Colombia and Argentina with the rest of the world in an electro ethnic ritual”, Noisey Mexico, URB, The BPM, and more. The duo have previously enchanted audiences at transformational and electronic festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle, Decibel Festival, and Envision Festival – Costa Rica.

Esperando el Tsunami – by CPH DOX
Vincent Moon, who won the Sound & Vision Prize in 2009 with his masterpiece ‘La Faute des Fleurs’, is back with what he calls his best film ever. We are not reluctant to agree with him. ‘Esperando el tsunami’ is an intoxicating picture & sound piece disguised as a road movie. Alejandra and Luis, the two young musicians in the South American duo Lulacruza, travel across Colombia to take the country’s musical nectar and transform it into their almost shamanic trance sessions, which call to mind Animal Collective’s early days. On the heels of them follows Moon with his sensuous-seeking camera and responsive musicianship -which make him into something quite unique in today’s film world. This hipster-vagabond who single-handedly revived the music video as an art form, is now doing the same with music documentary. But ‘Esperando El Tsunami’ is greater than its own genre, with its extreme close-ups of nature’s smallest details that open the film gradually up, as a magical-realism love story of the most beautiful kind. There is no doubt. Vincent Moon has done it again.
