Sonideros: "Your life needs music" 

Sonidero culture goes beyond enjoying music in a public space. It is a lifestyle where neighborhood representation and turf pride serve as the backdrop for a musical scene where djs, dancers, producers, a hoard of fans create a community in a tradition that began in the 70s in Mexico City. Transnational communication is achieved through messages and recordings. A net of communication is created, independent, and autonomous. 

In January 2012, the downloadable e-book "Sonideros en las Aceras, Véngase la Gozadera" was published containing writtings from several researchers discussing cumbia and salsa cultures around Latin America and a a vast visual documentation with most of the work exhibited in this portfolio dating mostly from 2008 - 2011. 

This portfolio is a selection of over 6 years of documentation of the sonidero community alongside the collaborative plataform El Proyecto Sonidero, an independently coordinated project created by researchers Mariana Delgado and Marco Ramirez, and in which I was also the visual coordinator. Several sonidero gigs and exhibitions in México, Spain and England were coordinated by the plataform, positioning  the sonidero culture and music in other spheres besides la calle y el barrio.

Sonideros: "Tu vida necesita musica" 

La Cultura Sonidera va más allá de disfrutar la música en espacios públicos: es un estilo de vida. Representación barrial y orgullo de sus orígenes sirven como fondo para una escena musical en donde djs, bailarines, productores y un sin fin de fans han creado una comunidad que inicia a principios de los años 70s en la Ciudad de México.  Sus fiestas hacen posible un tipo de comunicación transnacional a través de saludos escritos y grabaciones, con los cuales se crea una auténtica red de conexión independientes y autónoma.

En enero de 2012 el libro digital descargable "Sonideros en las Aceras, Véngase la Gozadera" fue publicado conteniendo escritos e investigaciones sobre la cultura de los géneros musicales Cumbia y Salsa en America Latina así como una documentacion prolifica visual documentada entre 2008 -2011. 


Este portafolio es una selección de seis años de documentación de la comunidad sonidera al lado de la plataforma colaborativa El Proyecto Sonidero, un proyecto independiente creado y coordinado por los investigadores Mariana Delgado y Marco Ramirez y en la cual colaboré tambien como coordinadora visual. Varias exposiciones y tocadas organizadas en Mexico, España e Inglaterra fueron coordinadas por el la plataforma, posicionando la cultura sonidera en otras esferas aparte de la calle y el barrio.
