Minutes before going up, Martín Huergo told us that he had prepared a lot for this concert, whose main audience is cuartetero. “It was very difficult to combine quartet and electronics. There is a substance in the middle called Córdoba, and that is the meeting point. It is difficult not to give up the things of one style and not lose the substance of the other”. As Los Manseros Santiagueños were playing at the time of the note, the DJ commented that there were “many people” watching them, and that “it’s neither electronic music nor quartet, nor is it Kapanga. So there are too many factors that we can combine. That’s what What the world needs: coexistence”.
After getting off the stage Anastasia told us that it was doing the songs of La Mona in a rock key “it was quite a challenge, because I come from a different background, but it went very well. People were singing and dancing”. She also spoke of a possible next edition and said “yes or yes we will be there”.
