Synopsis: Comadre Araña’s concert was presented as a part of the 7th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, held in August of 2009 in Bogotá, Colombia, under the title 'Staging Citizenship: Cultural Rights in the Americas.' This 10-day event brought together activism, scholarship, and art around the themes of legacies, memories, struggles, and frontiers of citizenship. In Comadre Araña, the traditional music of Colombia's Pacific region meets jazz, rock, pop and electronic music. Three female voices intermingle with the rhythm of the bombo, marimba, cununo and guasá, along with electronic instruments such as the Indian sitar, the tiple guitar of the Colombian Andes, loops, samplers and all the resources of live electronic music. This edited version of the concert offers a privileged view of the musicians and the way they play their instruments - on stage, Comadre Araña functions as an organic experience where human voices and bodies intertwine with musical instruments. It members include; Juan Sebastián Monsalve (Director and bass player), Juanita Delgado (voice), Verónica Atehortúa (voice), Urpi Barco Quintana (voice), Andrés Felipe Salazas (drums and percussion), Rocío Medina (marimba de chonta and percussion), Edwin Ospina (electric guitar, percussion), Camilo Velásquez (tiple guitar, electronic programming and guitar).
