We have BIG NEWS!

Sep.26, 2012

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

After 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.

.

We 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).

Esperando el Tsunami

The film we did with Vincent Moon is out! And anybody anywhere can watch it. Just go to Host a Screening to sign up and create your own screening (watch it with friends, family or a group of strangers that you meet for the first time!)

The film follows Lulacruza as we search for Colombia’s musical nectar… We traveled to some remote areas of Colombia searching for the roots of it’s music. Along the way we listened to nature, dialoging and sometimes channeling the voices of the land, and improvised with local folkloric musicians.

Since it’s release  people already organized over 200 screenings around the planet. People are getting together to watch in places like Colombia, Argentina, USA, Mexico, Venezuela, England, Russia, France, Portugal, Brazil, South Africa, Morocco, Indonesia, and more.

The funds for this project were raised through Kickstarter. Around 200 people donated to the project. Its been a collective creation! and that is why we want to share it FREE for everyone to watch and participate. Please spread the word.- See more at: https://web.archive.org/web/20150517063915/https://lulacruza.com/news#sthash.YCJZD0xO.dpuf
