Piazza G. Pisanelli
“Mexican artists find inspiration (and success) in their roots” – The New York Times
This description by The New York Times perfectly encapsulates the qualities of Centavrvs, a Mexican band with a decade of experience behind it, during which it consolidated its signature sound: Latin American music balanced with electronica. Not surprisingly, its defining genre could most accurately be classified as “Electrónica Regional Mexicana”. Centavrvs is a musical project founded in 2012, in which Mexican folklore and popular culture blend with different rhythms such as cumbia, chicha, afrobeat, tribal and Brazilians sounds, and is one of the most popular indie bands in Mexico City.
This fusion began with their first EP Aniv de la Rev (Corridos de la Revolución Mexicana) and industry recognition for their distinctive sound followed with a Latin GRAMMY nomination from the Latin Recording Academy for their album “Sombras de Oro”.
The band comprises Demián Gálvez on guitar and vocals, DJ Rayo on turntable and percussion, Paco Martínez on guitar and Alán Santos on synthesizers and electronics. On 10th September we will have the honor of listening to them live, for free, in the evocative setting of Piazza Pisanelli in Tricase, accompanied by visual art.
