We were proud to host our first musical event at our flagship location focusing on how the artist's work informs what is behind the music.

It was an afternoon of sharing experiences and ideas within the electronic music community in Cusco, Peru mediated by Alan Martin Céspedes Van Oordt "Zoldia" in the company of these three talented music producers:


Anthony Paucarmayta is a Peruvian music producer and artist who takes traditional and ancestral music and fuses it with futuristic electronic sounds.
Born in Cusco, Peru. He connects his music with the ancient civilizations that have guided him through their cosmovision and ancestral knowledge.


QOQEQA explores Afro-Peruvian, Andean and tribal musical roots. Daniel Valle-Riestra recently presented his debut album via the Kebrada label, which was reviewed by Pitchfork, Mixmag, Dj Mag, Boiler Room, Resident Advisor and Xlr8r. He is also an active collaborator of the labels Eck-Echo (Berlin) and Terror Negro Records (Lima).
