Radical Sounds Latin America will host the closing concert of this year on November 20 at Arkaoda in Neukölln. The finale will feature live performances by: Guatemalan-born experimental cellist and composer Mabe Fratti—using cello, voice and synthesizers, she sews contemporary elements like shoegaze and dream pop with ancestral influences that go from Gregorian chants to Sephardi music.
The Mapuche artist and violinist Eli Wewentxu—whose sound focuses on disarticulating the Eurocentric structure of music and instruments such as the violin. The Brazilian and Berlin-based experimental duo M. Takara and Carla Boregas—their music is the result of an interplay between drums and synths, blending Boregas’s aether and warmth electronics with Takara’s jazzy improvised percussion—somewhere between abstract improvisation and propulsive rhythm.
Inspired by the festival’s spirit, Root Radicals, a Berlin–based handcrafted zero-waste food company and the official caterer for RSLA since 2020, will take over Arkaoda’s kitchen to serve delicious latinoamerican food.
Radical Sounds Latin America is an online platform and an annual non-profit festival based in Berlin that started in 2019 as a transnational project. It aims to open up alternate timelines and temporalities through sound and listening practices, performance, and deeper dialogues, while creating a space for plurality, experimentation, and research.
