Julián Mayorga


  • Friday 16 19:40 - 20:25


Quirky and lush guitar compositions

Julián Mayorga’s music emerges from the weirdest part of the new Colombian tropicalist scene, gathering together elements from psychedelia, Latin American folklore, electronic music and sound experimentation. An alumni of the Red Bull Music Academy Montréal 2016, Mayorga’s show incorporates a singular electronic approach, using his own synthesizer sounds, in situ looping, rare percussion samples, tropical grooves, vocoders and psychedelic guitar processing.

The visual aspect combines crazy animations drawn by Mayorga himself, a Latino-Futuristic outfit and very frenetic dance moves. Mayorga has previously performed at events including Sónar Bogotá (2017), Sónar Barcelona (2017), Sound Isidro in Madrid and Festival Centro in Colombia, among many others.
