Sonido Tupinamba is a DJ, founder of Barcelona’s finest Afro-Tropical night Poly-Rythmo Club and radio host at Radio Primavera Sound and Dublab. Born in the Argentinian Andes, Tupinamba started DJing when she was sixteen in her hometown of Mendoza, at the time she was one of the few female artists behind the turntables.
Inspired by the selvatic and peculiar roots of African and Latin American music, Tupinamba mixes her tropical influences with the disco, funk and house grooves. Her sessions are eclectic and vibrant, transporting the audience into different eras and places. She creates the perfect mood for the dance floor. Her sets are bright and festive, whether the sounds take you to an idyllic sunset at the beach, a night out in the city or a wild safari in the jungle.
She has shared her taste and skills in international festivals such as Glastonbury (UK), WOMAD (UK and Spain), Pohoda (Slovakia), BUE (Argentina), Plai (Rumania), Soundeat, Mutek and Primavera Sound (Spain). Her sets have also shaken dance floors in music temples such as Pikes (Ibiza). Nitsa (Barcelona), Bar Caracol (São Paulo) and Terminal Club (México City).
