Radical Sounds Latin America is a non-profit festival that platforms talent in sound, music, art, performance and activism from Latin America and its diaspora.
Established in 2019, the Berlin-based festival – which is also a digital platform and cultural hub – fosters a secure space for multicultural exchange across the spectrum of the arts. Last year, itcelebrated its fifth edition, encompassing a six-day hybrid programme both online and offline, inviting participants to explore and reimagine music, art and meaningful dialogues.
The lineup featured an incendiary set from raptor house pioneer DJ Babatr, alongside the likes of Dengue Dengue Dengue and Lila Tiranda a Violeta. There was also a performance of the experimental album Anganga by Juçara Marçal and Cadu Tenório; Ife Day's Les Retournée; multidisciplinary artist Camila Nebbia challenging hierarchies; Lima-based producer DJ Latinchat and more. Food was provided by Roots Radicals, a local zero-waste food company, supplying handcrafted and environmentally conscious cuisine.
