Luis, Tatiana & Gerry

AFRODISIACO is a musical group that takes shape in 2014, but the idea began almost ten years ago as a result of a sociological investigation by the historian Miroslava Herrera with the collaboration of Tatiana Ríos.In 2014 they record their first song “Comes from Panama” (Viene de Panamá), inspired by the play “La dama boba” by Lope de Vega, and in the poem “Visión de Panamá” by Demetrio Korsi. The song fuses the rhythms of the north drum in atravesao, with current elements such as the electric guitar and the spoken word (rap). Go and see them perform at Trama.
