Vrstvy Alternativy w/ Ricarda Cometa & Salix Nigra
Ricarda Cometa (AR)
ritual soundscapes - mutant noise - tropical dancing grooves
"Their music is as visceral as a punch to the gut, twisting and breaking all sorts of rhythms from Latin America in an avant-garde way that sets them far apart from the current generation of re appropriators of such traditions, whether they come from the ‘punk’ milieu or the electronic scene. Improvisation is the key here, damaging all the commonplace elements into something new and harder-hitting, freeing them violently into a wilderness of noise and lo-fi production, de-colonizing them into a dance-party savage with color and deformed shapes."
(David Murrieta, A Closer Listen)
