INVISIBLE PEOPLES is the second collaboration of the Havana electronic music duo Nacional Electrónica (Edwin Casanova González and Alexis de la 0) and the L.A. electronic music duo TKU: Tecamachalco Underground (César Gallegos and Mateo Latosa).
Recorded in Havana in June 2018, this album was recorded for Beatriz Eugenia Vasquez, as the score for a full-length work of contemporary dance. A initial short contemporary dance work, entitle ANGELUS LAMENTUM premieres in Los Angeles at the Ebb & Flow (Chinatown) Festival on June 12-13, 2021. The full-length dance score will have additional musical pieces, including contibutions by Eddie "Skip" Parente.
The title refers to minority communities that continue to survive and hold on to their cultural heritages within, though for the most part unseen and ignored by, the majority society. This album is a companion piece to ECHOES OF THE MOURNING STONES.
