NACIONAL ELECTRÓNICA & TKU
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 is the complete score for a full-length work of contemporary dance by Beatriz Eugenia Vasquez and 3-19 Dance Art. Still a work in progress, additional musical pieces will be added including additional musical contibutions by Eddie "Skip" Parente. Premiere in 2020.
The title, while only a tentative one, sums up the theme of the dance work: minority communities that continue to survive and hold on to their cultural heritages--for the most part unseen and ignored by the majority society.
