Closing party for SF Tropical with special performance by ChuCha Santamaría y Usted.
Sofía Córdova has created a series of music videos to accompany a concept album made under the pseudonym ChuCha Santamaría y Usted. These works draw from the conventions and pictorial language of mainstream music videos, while creating a narrative surrounding specific issues of the Caribbean Diaspora and identity politics. Córdova has created a site-specific installation based on the recording of their new vinyl record released "Fiebre Tropical." For SF Tropical she focuses on an installation that mimics the creative process or musical laboratory for both her compositions and video projects. The limited edition vinyl record explores a variety of themes about the Caribbean histories that includes the discovery of Puerto Rico.
