MUSIC SESSIONS

Among the tactics applied by Ciudad Emergente, Music Sessions encourage participation and the recognition of local talents, through outdoor concerts in public spaces.

During the work carried out in the Antofagasta Clean and Connected project in 2014, Ciudad Emergente organized an Eco Carnaval with Creo Antofagasta and Minera Escondida, among other institutions, on the esplanade of the Regional Stadium.

At the meeting, the band Ases Falsos and singer Gepe performed with other local music bands, such as Huacha, Mística Show, Dual Element and Merope.

Also, within the framework of the Shared Cities project in Ciudad de Guatemala, Guatemala, a chorus of Guatemalan children was invited to sing a capella in the temporary amphitheater in Jungla Urbana .

Thanks to the self-management of the friends of Jungla Urbana, during this day the Jazzimba group also participated, whose musical proposal is a contemporary mix between jazz and marimba. This event was held as a closure to the tactics implemented during that day, filling the ravine with harmonic melodies.

Through these examples, Music Sessions show how arts and culture can foster citizen participation in public spaces.
