Practical Records Presents Kohinoorgasm, Gemma Castro, Soltera, La Pachamami
December 18, 2019, 9:00 pm11:30 pm
Practical Records presents a radiant evening of performance.
Kohinoorgasm (one word: ko-hee-noor-gasm) is the experimental pop music project of queer, mixed, desi artist Josephine Shetty. Shetty uses minimal dance beats and susurrate vocals as a cathartic way to communicate her opposition to misogyny, war, and cultures of conquest and to heal from anxiety and abuse. Danceable drums and dreamy synth sequences loop beneath repetitive English and Hindi lyrics to create hypnotic environments in which Shetty hopes listeners can reflect and replenish. She has performed at SXSW, Berkeley Art Museum, The Echo, and several other universities, museums, music venues, and DIY spaces across the US and Europe. Josephine is born and based in Los Angeles, CA.
Gemma Castro is a recording artist, dj, producer, and activist working in the greater Los Angeles area. Gemma started her journey in music singing in catholic church choirs as a little girl. She has lent her vocals and production skills to a number of music projects, recording a touring with bands from the LA underground scene, along with producing her own record.
Soltera is a Colombian femme artist from the Valley bringing you sonidos estilo CASA/TECA.
La Pachamami’s time traveling cabaret opens lines of communication with the spirit world to activate ancestral magic amongst the collective. La Pachamami remixes spoken word with new wave, techno, punk, psychedelic soundscapes from through out Abya Yala to engage in political memory and reverse the gaze on his story.
