BE A STRANGER
Our Artists and Partners:
This funk-latin fueled trio has built a devoted North American following through their riveting live performance and guerilla touring schedule. Their members have learned and lived in Central and South Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America and these diverse influences shine through in their compositions.
Paisano - LA/Barcelona
This blend of psych rock, jazz, and experimental pop is informed by composer Julian Borrego's dual world upbringing. Their two self-produced EPs created a worldly, eclectic sound that was unheard in the contemporary California scene prior to their fusion. They are sure to further refine this sound through an upcoming year of travel and musical exploration.
Ritmo del Rio - San Rafael, Colombia
Hostel, organic farm, and concert venue Ritmo del Rio is the physical center of The Beloved Stranger. Nestled in the heart of Antioquia, this destination hostel is quickly becoming a meeting hub for local and international musicians thanks to its pristine setting and organic cuisine. The owners also spearhead local reforestation and community development projects.
Kloop - Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
One of the most popular news and media websites in Kyrgyzstan, covering everything from internal politics and sports, to culture and human rights issues, to regional and international news. The majority of the website's content is created by students from the Kloop school of Journalism in Bishkek.
