Some of my favorite Colombian bands are attending SXSW 2009 (South by Sidewest music festival. Texas) and I can't help to want to brag about it becuase the truth is that I'm very happy that this music is finally hitting world venues, specially after I've seen them grow.
These bands are the result of hard work by profesional Colombian musicians that have invested all their energy in making something worth listening to.
My "editor pics" for the Colombian bands will be Bomba Estereo, Monareta,Verde3, Cho Quib Town and Diva Gash. There will also be other bands that don't match my taste but I'll name them anyway: Doctor Krapula, Ratón Perez, and Poper.
You can check out some of their videos and if you want to go to the SXSW website, click on the title of this post.
Enjoy good Colombian Music!
they'll be performing @ Speakeasy (412 Congress Av)

On a recent "Discover" magazine, they published on the last page "20 things you don't know about time". I've always had a hard time thinking that music is an event that occurs in time, because, what if time as we know it didn't exist?. Anyway, I'm pretty sure music EXISTS, but what if you read this?:

"time is an illusion, Lunchtime doubly so," joked Douglas Adams in The Hitchhicker's guide to the galaxy. Scientist aren't laughing, though. Some speculative new physiscs theories suggest that time emerges from a more fundamental-and timeless-reality."
