Set against the backdrop of the Colombian city Cali, Urban weaves through the poetry and violence of street life with a pounding live reggaeton soundtrack, raw contemporary aesthetic and volcanic force.
High octane performance forming a tapestry of interwoven stories; tales of life and death, rhythm and groove, and plots full of lush strings and heavy basslines. A true narrative of the street, this multi lingual live feast will catch you up from the very beginning, spellbound, and carry you along with it, through streets of brash percussion and far off tribal beats, down alleys of haunting melodies and into avenues full of the sounds and atmospheres of the Carnival.
It is a journey through emotion, a pulsating story-telling voyage of rhythm and expression, words and movement, thoughts and ideas, with traditional and modern meeting in a furnace of frequency and fire. This is the voice of these young people; telling the world what its like in their reality, through their eyes, ears, voices, and experiences on the streets of Cali, through their hearts minds and spirits, and most of all, through their bodies, microphones and speakers. A hip-hopera for the modern era.
