Extraordinary double bill featuring the gaucho psychics los siquicos litoraleños from Argentina, and the witch of Texcoco - La Bruja De Texcoco from Mexico. La Bruja De Texcoco is a music performance born out of a rejection of masculinity in Mexican music, taking traditional Mexican music down a feminine path, into a fabulous world of baroque extravagance. We'll start of the night with the docufilm "Encandilan Luces, viaje psicotrópico con Los Síquicos Litoraleños" about Los Siquicos.
┆LOS SIQUICOS LITORALEÑOS┆AR
Los Siquicos Litoraleños (The psychics of el Litoral) is a unique band formed in 2004 who are originally from the outland countryside around the small city Curuzú Cuatiá in the province of Corrientes, northeast of Argentina. It's an area known as 'el Litoral', where the locals are called Litoraleños. The band plays a highly original style using acoustic / electric guitars and drums, adding toy keyboards, shortwave radios and all sorts of domestic machinery (i.e. washing machines and freezers). Stuffed with a vast array of sound effects, they craft otherworldly tunes which cover tropicalia genres such as cumbia, chamamé (popular folk music of Corrientes and other regions), chicha, and a variety of non-rock rhythms. Los Siquicos' first European tour in 2009 was organised by the then still unnamed Pantropical, and Worm.

┆LA BRUJA DE TEXCOCO┆MX
La Bruja de Texcoco (The Witch of Texcoco) from Mexico City, has been dedicated to music for twenty years. A lover of transfeminity and Mexican tradition, La Bruja was born in Texcoco, into a world of rituals, armadillo shells and the depth of the night. “I did not find La Bruja, she found me ...”I stand firm and proud, wearing my huipil (traditional Mexican indigenous garment) that has a thousand colors and speaks to the wind." La Bruja De Texcoco is a music performance project born out of a rejection of masculinity in Mexican music. La Bruja takes traditional Mexican music down a feminine path, into a fabulous world full of extravagance, sequins, masks and huipiles.

┆DAZZLE LIGHTS: A Psychotropic Journey with Los Síquicos Litoraleños

From the Curuzú Cuatiá in the rural heart of the Argentine Northeast and, a group of quirky musicians invent a new sound: psychedelic chamamé folk. They are Los Siquicos Litoraleños, also lovingly dubbed as "The Pink Floyd of the Poor". "Dazzle Lights" is a docufilm that follows the band and their surroundings. They are inadvertently the instigators of a fresh take on things in the music scene before deciding to step out of it, showing more interest in cultural debates about chamamé, UFOs and mushrooms instead.
