Festival Nómade is a nomadic experiment that searches to generate a space for gathering, exchange, and promotion of the cultural roots of Latin America by combining music, art, and sustainable tourism.

It takes place faraway from big cities where life is still lived according to ancestral beginnings, encouraging eco-tourism in remote places.


It is built on the basis of respect and care for nature and is shaped to be a platform for artists with congruent musical explorations - those which rekindle the fire of folklore through the use of musical tools brought to us by new technology.

The next installment of this festival will be February 8 - 13 in Manquemapu, 10th Region of Los Lagos, Chile.

The first three days are dedicated to construction, consciousness and learning. Through workshops and lectures festival participants, along with the community, will not only connect with new friends and surroundings but also construct some of the infrastructure that will remain in the community to benefit the families of Manquemapu.

The final three days of the festival will be dedicated to music. It will be a festival of folklore until the sun sets, and with the appearance of the first stars and through the night until sunrise, a festival of Latin American electronic music. The journey is based in the authentic and indigenous sounds of our continent, supported by musical tools that new technology has brought us.

There will also be the chance to take part in activities such as Yoga, Temazcales, Permaculture Workshops, Sound Landscape Expositions, Fire Ceremonies and a wide-range of other outdoor activities.

Los gaiteros

Gaiteros de San Jacinto

Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto have been the most important group of flutists from Colombia since the mid-1950s. These multi-generational musicians keep a hybridized tradition alive that’s exemplified by African drums, indigenous pipe flutes, and Spanish poetic forms.

They are a symbol in San Jacinto and Bogotá as well as a point of reference for every pipe-playing musician in Colombia. Through their new compositions and thanks to their teachings to younger artists, they generate a critical link between traditional flute music and its contemporary revival.

By the hands of Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, the sound of combined pipe flutes is transformed within the vast and characteristic sound of music from coast, and within their listeners it evokes feelings of happiness and celebration. Today the band is led by Manuel Antonio “Toño” García and Juancho "Chuchita" Fernández, both 80-years old.

NU

Nu

NU, originally from Germany, is a modern nomad who has traveled through different countries bringing his music to the best clubs and festivals. This artist is as diverse in his musical styles as in his myriad homes. He’s a producer and sound engineer and despite having diversified his music into various genres, always inscribes each track and each performance with his undeniable style.

Nicola Cruz

Nicola Cruz

Nicola Cruz is producer, musician and DJ born in France into a South American family. Currently he lives and works in Quito, Ecuador in the heart of the Andes. His career began as a percussionist and later led him directly to electronic music. In his works Nicola aims to include references of distinct natures, particularly his passion for the landscapes of his country, its cultures, rituals and rhythms. Because of this his music radiates an intimate understanding of nature, from the organic exuberance of its sound to the smooth consistency of its songs. However, within this mixture there is a prevalence of a delicate balance between forces: his music is deeply rhythmic without neglecting melody. And despite working in collaboration with artists from various times and spaces, the music never stops being intimate.

From this musical connection of the past with the present, of the traditional with the modern, there has been born in the last few years a South American uprising. It’s a sharing of the quest of making music with a spiritual component, exploring with consciousness the indigenous and afro cosmology of the region.

In 2015 ‘Prender la Alma’ Nicola’s first full-length album was released with the aim of consolidating his musical explorations that go beyond just making music.

matanza

Matanza

Matanza comes from Chile with a playful electronica that combines local, ancestral, folkloric, and tribal rhythms with more urban and synthetic sounds. The music also provides a rich palette of organic sounds that stem from wind, wood, brass, and rawhide drum instruments, resulting in a mix of acoustic and synthetic sounds. It’s an arrangement of materials and textures that creates a spacious crystal-clear water which never overwhelms.

The trio comes from its fourth European tour - this time alongside Acid Pauli. They are yet to stop releasing mixtapes and new productions that instantly create spaces to dance, that go off the beaten path towards metaphysical contemplations, that allow you to loosen up, and that navigate a wild journey through our untamed Americas.

Festival Nómade promotes an awareness of care, respect and conservation of the environment, making it a priority to leave the spaces that host this experiment clean and without waste or footprint.

It aims to create bonds with the local families, inviting them to take part in the design and construction of the festival. The community also shares its traditions, its daily life and some typical meals with participants, generating a genuine cultural exchange.

Faithful to its origin, this gathering maintains its characteristic platform of the promotion of artists that have musical quests oriented towards the salvage of the roots of Latin America and the sounds of the world.

The music, the ancestral culture that remains alive, the landscapes, the various workshops, and the horizontal relationships between participant, artist and community is what makes Festival Nómade one of a kind. It’s a space to find yourself among authentic and conscientious people, connected with their roots and aligned with their traditions, all beside the edge of a beach in the middle of a thousand year-old forest full of biodiversity.

Festival Nómade comes to Manquemapu for the third time as a fruition of an alliance with the Williche community. It comes with the idea to awaken an interest in the region and to diversify, through eco-tourism, the income of the families there and to keep alive the traditions of the native peoples of Chile.
