Born in the Argentinian Andes, Sonido Tupinamba got her start DJing at just 16 years old in her hometown, Mendoza. At the time she was one of the few female artists behind the turntables and she now travels the world DJing, curating and hosting radio shows.
In 2007 Sonido Tupinamba relocated to Barcelona and started DJing various venues, clubs and cultural centers becoming one of the most in-demand DJs in the city. She eventually went on to found Barcelona’s finest Afro-Tropical night, Poly-Rythmo Club; become the resident DJ at the italo-disco-funk temple, Glove Party; and a member of the She Said So community for gender equality in the music industry.
Inspired by the selvatic and hypnotic roots of African and Latin American music, Tupinamba mixes her tropical influences with disco, funk and house grooves. Her sessions are eclectic and vibrant, transporting the audience into different eras and places. She creates the ideal soundtrack for every moment and the perfect mood for the dance floor. Her sets are always bright and festive, whether the sounds take you to an idyllic sunset at the beach, a night out in the city or a wild safari in the jungle.
Throughout her career she has performed at international festivals such as Glastonbury (UK), WOMAD (UK and Spain), Camp Bestival (UK), Electric Picnic (Ireland), Pohoda (Slovakia), Estéreo Picnic (Colombia), BUE (Argentina), Plai (Rumania), Soundit, Mutek and Primavera Sound (Spain). Her sets have also shaken dance floors in music temples such as Corsica Studios (London), Pikes (Ibiza), Nitsa (Barcelona), Bar Caracol (São Paulo), Noche Negra and Departamento (México City) as well as Museums and cultural centers: Musée d'Orsay (Paris), CCCB and Macba (BCN), Círculo de Bellas Artes (Madrid).
