Señor Coconut to Perform in a North-American Exclusive!
MUTEK takes over the Quartier des Spectacles with its first free outdoor concert
May 07, 2010
We couldn't be more proud to announce the presentation of our very first free, outdoor concert - right in the heart of downtown Montreal! On Saturday, June 5th at 9pm, the Place des Festivals in the Quartier des Spectacles will come alive with the indelible Latin rhythms of SEÑOR COCONUT & HIS ORCHESTRA, accompanied by Argenis Brito.
Señor Coconut is but one of the many faces of legendary German producer Uwe Schmidt, one of the world's most respected electronic musicians and a longtime acolyte of the MUTEK Festival. World-renowned for his stunning 2000 album El Baile Alemán, which saw him rendering nine classic Kraftwerk singles in Latin styles such as the Cha-Cha-Cha, Merengue, and Cumbia, SEÑOR COCONUT & HIS ORCHESTRA have since become a very popular live act featuring nearly a dozen musicians and a mastery of crowd-pleasing Electrolatino music. Still reproducing electro-pop hits in a Latin style, the 2008 album Around The World delivered covers of Daft Punk, Eurythmics, Prince and others.
Opening the concert, four veterans of the Montreal music scene - Jean-Phi Goncalves (percussionist with Beast and Plaster), Alex McMahon (Plaster) and Martin Lizotte (Loco Locass, Papagroove) on keyboards, and J-F Lemieux (Daniel Bélanger) on bass - join forces as LE GOLDEN (formerly known as Jedi Electro).
