Live from Tijuana, Mexico Nortec Collective is set to have Melbourne audiences moving and grooving.
Nortec stands for norteño-techno, the convergence of high-tech and low-tech, of north and south, of all things techno with all things that are part of the musical tradition of north western Mexico. Since 1999 these musicians have packed rave parties throughout Mexico, Japan, the US and Germany performing their reworking of the British and German techno they grew up on with the vernacular Mexican music their parents played at home. Their high-energy performances combine electronic music with digital imagery to give audiences a new look at contemporary life in Mexico.
