Baptized as “the inventors of gothic cumbia” by MTV Iggy, Bogotá’s LMNTKDM transcends the tropical clichés that characterize Colombia’s pop culture, and instead incites audiences to reflect upon the true essence of their country: a dark nation, but also a very “sabroso” one. By combining folk cumbia with violent industrial vices and champeta flavors with obscure electronica, the misterious trio takes modern “bailadores” into a unique trip of ritual dance and phantasmagoric euphoria. Their show, an extravagant lithurgy of heavy synths and skeletical choreographies, is both manifesto and tragicomedy. Self released in the dawn of 2012 and immediately acclaimed by the latin alternative press, their debut gospel, Muerte y Sabrosura, took them to the LAMCas a part of their celebrated Yankee Tour 2013.
