Mysterious characters in wild costumes float through the crowd before appearing on stage. It’s BuenRostro, a collective who represent deep-but-fresh sonics and cultures, likely even for those familiar with other Mexican artists and styles. Buenrostro formed in 2010 in San Pedro Atocpan on Mexico City’s southern edge. They grew up immersed in the deep roots and customs of their elder nahuatl (the language of Aztec/Mexica) speakers; inspiring them to experiment and create through their ancestor’s Mexican traditional rhythms and worldwide art. Six musicians (voice-jarana, accordion, electric guitar, bass, drums and Latin percussion) fuse Mexican regional sounds and connect diverse artistic disciplines through Latin American folklore, cumbia, samba jazz and rock. It’s relatable multi-cultural traditional music’s avant-garde with vibrant and visual music, dance and theatre. BuenRostro addresses humanity’s impact on the planet with upcycled garments and stage scenery made from recycled bottles and clothing, integrating characters inspired by global cultural traditions.
