WHAT YOUR EARS SAY & THE COVER LOOKS LIKE
WHAT WE SAY
Good to see the chugging globetronica champs Shika Shika back with a migration themed collection of opiated grooves for the ecstatic dancers and world music 2.0 massive.
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY
Shika Shika is very happy and proud to share with you "QUERENCIA" our 2021 compilation introducing 14 tracks by artists from 14 different countries.
The theme of this compilation was migration in the broadest sense - how music, people and culture expands and goes beyond borders - and each artist approached that in their own way, in their own context. You can find out more about the inspiration by clicking on the individual tracks.
Querencia: 'a place where you are your most authentic self; a place from which your strength of character is drawn, where you feel safe, where you feel at home'.
For the artwork, we invited Argentinean visual artist Gala Berger to collaborate with us with one of her pieces. She is co-founder of La Ene (New Energy Museum of Contemporary Art), an experimental museum based in Buenos Aires, and the Paraguay Printed Art Fair, a fair born with the aim of creating alternative platforms of exchange and circulation of independent publications without the traditional restrictions and regulations faced by the mainstream press.
