NOV 30: The SF pre-party of Mayan Heart Festival & Cosmic Convergence

On November 30, KEYFRAME is honored to host “COSMIC HEART”, the San Francisco PRE-PARTY to two very special festivals happening in Guatemala in December: Mayan Heart Festival & Cosmic Convergence 2018! The event will take place at the Onedome Mixed Reality Art Experience, a space where Augmented Reality, projection mapping, soundscapes, food and drink, and even the physical space itself all work together to immerse you in a fantastical other world known as The Unreal Garden.

There will also be a cacao ceremony honoring both festivals and a musical journey spanning multiple genres & cultures. Featuring:

Kaminandahttps://soundcloud.com/kaminanda
Kaminanda’s ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and bouncy four on the floor. Using a generous dose of musical instruments and applied music theory designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; Focusing more and more on hypnotic elements of House, Techno and Trance while remaining in the slower tempos. A kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and micro-detail to evoke a deeper experience.

Khromatahttps://soundcloud.com/khromata
With a finger on the pulse of the global electronica scene, she draws the essence of tech-driven music to the surface with DJ sets inspired by the sounds of the underground. Khromata stands in the vanguard of storytelling and sensory manipulation in the modern era. Following years of experience playing shows and festivals around the world, Khromata now brings her versatile and spirited approach to sound weaving to Iboga Records. Driven by fun, energy and technical purity, she cannot be summarized by any single set or sound, making every Khromata performance an intoxicating, one-of-a-kind experience.

El Papachangosoundcloud.com/elpapachangomusic
El Papachango, originally from Argentina, moved to the States as a young adult and brought with him a love of music from South America that he blended with west coast underground beats to create a groove that is unique and infectious to dance floors everywhere. Sexy, soulful and funky sounds come out of him even when he’s fast asleep. El Papachango is one of the core creators of the legendary El Circo, one of San Francisco’s most prominent avant-garde performance groups that has been delivering music with a grip like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Freq Nasty, Antennae, Dj Laura Low and many others. His Latin fusion, tropical, hip hop influence creates fire on the dance floor.

Javier Portillahttps://soundcloud.com/javierportilla
(Natura Sonoris, Moonchild Records, Armada Music, Asymmetric, Global Underground, Frisky Radio) –
Music has the ability to connect us all together, no matter where we are. Javier Portilla has been living this truth throughout his life, traveling around the world to inspire long-lasting connections and create magical moments, sharing meaningful messages through mindful music. Combining a powerful blend of lightness and darkness into a seamless flow, Javier transmits his distinctive and deep sound through his personal productions and diverse DJ sets.

Mixwellhttps://soundcloud.com/mixwellmusic
Charged with the ancient Mayan energy of Guatemala’s volcanic Lake Atitlan, this Montreal-born producer fuses an eclectic blend of indigenous and world music textures over juicy Global Bass beats. A regular at such renowned festivals as Envision, Symbiosis / Oregon Eclipse, Lucidity and Cosmic Convergence, Mixwell’s notorious events GLOBO and Pachangon have become staples of Montreal and Atitlan’s respective music scenes (now even listed in Montreal’s legendary Jazz Festival), and his award winning productions have been recognized by the Canadian government, earned him scholarships and many other accolades.
