HELADO NEGRO: Island Universe Story (Cuentos del Universo Solitario) — SOLD OUT

Liquid Music
March 21, 2015


Helado Negro is the moniker of Roberto Carlos Lange, a child of Ecuadorian immigrants who has synthesized the Latin influences he heard growing up in South Florida, his experience with various rock outfits, modern electronic beats, and work with progressive classical composers into the hazily upbeat, groundbreaking music he is known for today. “Among the musicians currently redefining Latino culture worldwide,” Helado Negro “creates a sonic landscape that reflects 21st-century Latin America” (National Public Radio). This exclusive Liquid Music engagement offers an expansion of Helado Negro’s sound and vision, retaining his love of synths and bass while engaging a cadre of all-star collaborators (including iconic Stereolab vocalist Lætitia Sadier; sensational Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Adron; Wilco keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen; and David Byrne percussionist Jason Trammell) and premiering new arrangements by composers Trey Pollard (Matthew E White Band) and Jason Ajemian (Marc Ribot) for double string quartet, percussion and electronics. The performance will feature a multilingual mosaic of sound and strong visual elements – a natural translation of Helado Negro’s evocative music. With the Minneapolis Music Company, percussionist Matt Crum, synthesist Oliver Chapoy and vocalist Isaac Lekach.
