We have BIG NEWS!

Sep.26, 2012

We are recording our new album and Alejandra is beginning a new chapter in her life, maternity!!

aleCMKY2012After a string of beautiful shows in Mexico and the US this Summer, we are taking a long break from touring and performing. Meanwhile, we will record our new album on the magical Orcas Island, in the US Pacific NorthWest.

Alejandra will return to Colombia, to focus on bringing this new life into the world. There, she will continue to share sound and voice healing sessions. Luis will be in Argentina teaching and working on material for his new project. More updates coming soon!

.

Our film with Vincent Moon, Esperando el Tsunami will continue showing (you can easily screen the film HERE), and we will continue releasing new Outtakes every month, featuring incredible musicians from Colombia that we encountered during our travels. There are many upcoming jewels, so stay tuned…

There is a lot of new music that we will be releasing throughout the next year!!! Expect the Lulacruza visual album -filmed by Vincent Moon during the Esperando el Tsunami sessions- to be released on the first half of 2013. And then of course our newest album, with all the Orcas Island magic!!!! And sometime in between, due to popular demand we will be releasing the single Casa Redonda, with remixes by some of our favorite electronic artists.

.

lulacruza_2012tour_flyerWe are so so grateful for all the amazing support we have received and for the inspiring connections of the past months. Heartfelt thanks to Kate Lesta for managing ALL our movements and helping us expand so much!!! It was truly a joy to have all her help and insights during the tour, the Private-Public shows and the screenings of Esperando el Tsunami worldwide (over 200 screenings of the film have been organized by people and festivals!).

Also, huge thanks to Adam in Orcas Island, for making this dream of going up there to record come true…. Many others supported us lovingly along the way… specially our families in Santa Fe, NM (Paul Feathericci & Team Everything), in Boulder, CO (Jeremy, Nathan & Communikey Festival), in the Bay Area (Red Poppy and the rest of our beloveds) and Portland, OR (TLC farm crew and Beloved Festival).

2011 – It’s been an amazing year for us and we want to personally thank all of you for your support. We make music and art for a number of reasons, but we wouldn’t be doing any of this if it weren’t for all of you. Doing it Together and sharing what we find with others is the food that keeps us going and keeps us moving.

CircularTejidoThis year: we released Circular Tejido, a “genre-defying and border-collapsing” album that melts in your ear; we toured in the USA, playing some of our most epic concerts yet and discovering inspiring micro-communities of people spread across the country; we publicly raised over $15K through Kickstarter for a collaborative project with French filmmaker Vincent Moon in Colombia; we then traveled for almost three months through the country, getting to know some amazing local musicians and immersing ourselves in the voice of nature; and finally we released Esperando el Tsunami, the film that narrates some of the most profound experiences of our travel.

Lulacruza_Flyer_Summer2011_FULLSCHEDULEWe had such incredible concerts this year!!! We finished it, in Argentina, opening for the legendary Colombian singer Toto La Momposina in El Gran Rex, one of Buenos Aires’ most important theaters.

Also, we were nominated and won a number of awards in Colombia’s No Illuminadas Awards.

We still can’t believe all that happened in 2011!

There’s more to come in 2012! A new album, over a dozen outtakes to be posted in www.esperando.cc (with mini albums to download) from our travels, and a full-fledged tour where we travel to wherever you want us to go. Thanks for listening and being part of this radiant tapestry!

Esperando el Tsunami – Coming Soon!

Oct.24, 2011

After months of work we are happy to announce the upcoming release of our collaboration with Vincent Moon, Esperando el Tsunami (Waiting for the Tsunami).

Thanks to the donations of almost 200 people through Kickstarter we traveled for 3 months through rural Colombia, listening to the voices of each place, recording nature soundscapes, having impromptu performances out on the field, and collaborating with the local folkloric musicians. You can read about our travels on our blog.

The result is threefold: a poetic sound & image film that follows Lulacruza through Colombia; a new album by Lulacruza recorded out on the field; and a website with dozens of outtakes and extra recordings of the groups we encountered.

All of the material will be distributed for free under a Creative Commons license. Go to the project’s website www.esperando.cc to sign up and be the first to hear about the worldwide premiere.

The advance premiere is taking place on November 4th, in Copenhagen, Denmark at CPH DOX, one of Europe’s most important documentary festivals.

Take a look at the first teaser below.
