Fertilindo #2 Buenos Aires

On the first day of my arrival in Buenos Aires we already had a plan for later.

A friend of mine – George Solar – told me already in Ibiza about a group of artists that will be present at an event called ‘Fertilindo’, fruit of a label called ‘Fertil Discos’. A collective of musicians with no differentiation in musical styles, collaborating and supporting one another through a horizontal network to get the most out of each one.

Not knowing what to expect we arrived at a cultural space called Teatro Margarita Xirgu in Chacabuco 875 in Buenos Aires, and already entering you could breathe creativity. The main space is like an old theatre, with a gallery and an ample space for the crowd, crowned by a huge stage.

The decoration clearly reflected the ambition of this collective, all handmade with a focus on ambience more than on each artist. As we enter Cecilia, better known as Barda, opened the session with a mix of Ethno Folk that is typical for this fresh and inspiring label. Music for heart, hip and soul, with ethnic rhythms and spheric melodies, enriched with lush vocals.

Other artists to perform was Jin Yerei with an eclectic mix of the typical Cumbia and electronic sounds, resulting in all a movement called Cumbia Digital, a term that is rapidly gaining force in the latin american music scene with no end in sight.

Lulacruza were another highlight of this evening, combining Southamerican indigenous instruments with electronic sequencing, processing altogether into a very intimate and almost meditative output crowned by Alejandra’s voice with a very intense tonation. It instantly transports you into an altered state of consciousness and one can feel their colombian and argentinian roots.

Chancha via Circuito, artist name of Pedro Canale, crowned the session with a more minimal take on Digital Cumbia, spiced with dub rhythms and downtempo beats.

El Remolon finished the night with a unique performance using  just a keyboard, melting electronic and acoustic – in best manner of this aspiring label.

As i was not feeling really well after more than 36 hours of travel we had to leave the event before the end, but were told (and you will see in the pictures) that the people attending the event and the artists all joined the floor to perform an ultimate unification through rhythm, fruit of the total integration of both public and musicians.

The finish:

Here is a link to the fulminant finish of the event. And here is the gallery to more pictures.

It would be absolutely great and a true enrichment to our local music scene on Ibiza to invite such an interesting collective, at least in parts, to perform their vision of world music and helping to introduce more colour to our scene. This friday we will attend another event called ‘Mambo Cultural’ with music from Barda, Dat Garcia and DJ Silver Gris.
