about

Not the walls that should collapse is that passive place and "of craftsmanship" that the market has given to the Latin American. Today, for a Latin American artist to be recognized in the global art markets, he must be able to say "from here I speak". Recovering myths, traditions, ancestral cultures and popular are some of the twists that artists seek to be legitimized. "And I wonder: why? Already when you start working with record labels, you realize that it is the same market that imposes these criteria of legitimacy. It's interesting. Why do not other people need it to create their own language?

We need instrumentalists able to think and live up to their time. (...) They will be accused of heretics, yes, but I invite you to heresy

( excerpt from David Mora Robles interview to Susan Campos Fonseca). lagrietaonline.com/aproximacion-paisaje-sonoro-susan-campos/ )

Spanish
No de los muros que se deberían derrumbar es ese lugar pasivo y «de artesanía» que el mercado ha otorgado a lo latinoamericano. Hoy, para que un artista latinoamericano sea reconocido en los mercados globales del arte, debe poder decir «desde aquí hablo yo». Recuperar mitos, tradiciones, culturas ancestrales y populares son algunos de los giros que buscan los artistas para ser legitimados. «Y yo me pregunto: ¿por qué? Ya cuando empiezas a trabajar con sellos discográficos, te das cuenta de que es el mismo mercado el que impone esos criterios de legitimidad. Es interesante. ¿Por qué otras personas no lo necesitan para crear un lenguaje propio?

Necesitamos instrumentistas capaces de pensar y estar a la altura de su tiempo. (…) Serán acusados de herejes, sí, pero les invito a la herejía.
