TXAP is a South American music project founded by Ivan Txaparro. It combines Afro-Latin rhythms with electronic vibes and integrates live looping and activism-inspired hip-hop. With blues harmonica, flutes, guitar and synthesizers, TXAP creates a powerful sound experience that listeners can dance to.

The concert explores the correlation between music, storytelling and dance and focuses on the performative and activist aspects of Afro-diasporic and indigenous music (e.g. hip-hop, blues, reggae, funk, soul, salsa, cumbia, etc.). This illustrates how such manifestations served to create an experience of resistance in Africa and the Americas and played a crucial role in evoking utopias and resilience.

During the concert, we offer space for dancing and rhythmic interaction with the musicians, paired with historical stories about the music and the activist struggles in the Global South. All of this is presented from the perspective of joy, healing and communal celebration.
