The Wapapura Colombia Expedition
Yes, it is really happening. The Wapapura Colombia Expedition is less than two weeks away!
On the 4th of January three flights will arrive in Bogotá and be carrying the following people that make up the crew of this musical journey:
Ivan Moreno Romero: Sound engineer, Director of La Casa Estudio, Second in command of Wapapura, been with us since the very beginning and behind the faders for all of our recordings and CDs. Is coming down directly from Mexico where he has spent the last month recording Alvaro Corcuero´s CD and working as sound engineer for the great Jorge Pardo. We hope all this time in Mexico has him ready for whats next when he lands in Bogotá! Time to get out the new hiking boots!
Allen Myers: First Camera, Traveller, Photographer, Filmmaker, Director of Nomadsight. We are excited to add Allen to our Wapapura family and have him along to film all that passes before us. He has been travelling the world for the last 6 years and presenting photo exhibits in public spaces along the way.
His presence is sure to not only capture our travels on film, but also add an exciting element to the mix. He has just received funding from Sierra Nevada Brewery and we are proud to have the support of one of the best west coast beers.
Javi Rodriguez Ortigosa: Second Camera, Web management, DJ, Director of Moving Energy Sound Events. Javi is the invisible force behind all the web work that has gone into this project. This last year he has taken on Wapapura´s newest project, Moving Energy. He has traveled around Andalucia this last year with the Solar DJ Van, putting on solar powered music events, making people dance with the power of the Sun.
Rafael Kotcherha Campora: Director, Expedtion Design. About to leave the Inn in Granada, El Numero 8, to head out and take this dream to the next level. In Colombia last year, it became clear that this was the place where Wapapura needed to take the next leap. To jump over the ocean and work with the amazing musicians there and support the projects trying to protect the incredible biodiversity of this country that is currently under seige during this crucial time of transition. As he puts it, “its time to take this horse over the cliff to see if it really is a unicorn”
This is the team at the controls of this ship. Soon we will reveal where we will be heading and with whom we will be traveling….
