Un álbum: Claroscura, de Aterciopelados

El grupo colombiano de rock formado en 1990 por Andrea Echeverri y Héctor Buitrago volvió a unirse después de varios años para una gira internacional donde promocionarán el disco que publicaron a finales de mayo.

El disco se llama Claroscura, y tiene un poquito de los dos componentes del grupo. En las composiciones expresan todo tipo de sentimientos, todo tipo de sensaciones, y usan varios tipos de ritmos. Hay vitalidad y color, pero también hay reflexión. Los dos músicos tratan de reflejar en su música el universo construido por dos personas muy diferentes; por eso, el resultado es muy rico y, por lo mismo, tiene mucha luz, pero también tiene mucha oscuridad.

Claroscura está disponible en Spotify.

Aterciopelados

An album: Claroscura, by Aterciopelados

The Colombian rock band formed in 1990 by Andrea Echeverri and Hector Buitrago rejoined after several years for an international tour where they will promote the album they published towards the end of May.

The album is called Claroscura, and it has a little bit of the two band members. In the compositions, they express all kinds of feelings, all kinds of sensations, and use various types of rhythms. There is vitality and color, but there is also reflection. The two musicians try to reflect in their music the universe built by two very different people; that’s why the result is very rich and, for the same reason, it has a lot of light, but it also has a lot of darkness.

Claroscura is available on Spotify.

Una pelicula: Güeros, de Alonso Ruizpalacios

Sombra y Santos viven en un apartamento en el que hace tiempo que no tienen luz por no pagar sus facturas.

Con la huelga de la Universidad Nacional de fondo, estos tres chicos se embarcarán en una aventura para encontrar al músico desaparecido y, de paso, encontrase a si mismos.

Güeros está disponible en Netflix.

With the strike of the National University in the background, these three boys will embark on an adventure to find the missing musician and, while they are at it, find themselves.
