Furios wird das Body Rhythm Festival 2018 am Freitag Abend von dem Grammy nominierten Percussionisten Tupac Mantilla eröffnet. Er präsentiert in der Hebebühne Altona die Weltpremiere seiner Solo Performance „Body Songs“ exklusiv in Hamburg.
Tupac Manilla: "I could not be more excited about moving forward with the fascinating and absolutely challenging realm of Solo Performance by introducing my new show: BODY SONGS!
This body-rhythm-only highly interactive concept, now joins 'ONE' which, as much as it has already opened an incredible door in my career as a percussionist, is still in an early phase of development, that I look very much forward to continue bringing to new stages.
BODY SONGS, on the other hand, is the result of more than 10 years of research and development of my work with the body as a percussion instrument, and besides allowing me to have a live-performance context for systems like the Circulines, it will mainly bring me closer to an audience with which I cannot wait to make music with."
