PA’ PICAR is a cross-genre mixtape and interview series dedicated to showcasing Colombian digital producers utilizing low-barrier, Internet-powered production tools and distribution networks for new levels of artistic agency and self-presentation. I’ll be working in Bogotá until early summer 2014 thanks to funding from the Fulbright-mtvU fellowship program.
Duo PAJARITOS (DJ Malagón and Riobamba) are a pair of DJs, event-makers and documenters exploring the potential of contemporary global dance music. Along with our work with our Picó Picante family, we create traveling dance parties, document music culture in Mexico City and host conversations about a “post-geographic” perspective toward music.
