More about Groovalizacion:
Dublin & London (22/05/09): Groovalizacion announces the launch of its web-radio dedicated to peripheral grooves, world music and urban beats.
Because we like to believe that progress comes from mutual understanding, tolerance, the pleasure to meet foreign cultures and to taste the subtle contrasts which enrich our perception of the world this unique initiative aims at promoting cultural diversity through music. The project includes many musicians, artists, video producers, journalists and Radio DJs worldwide who all collaborate to create, discover, suggest and help developing Groovalizacion.
Co-founder of Groovalizacion, DJ iZem said: “We want to build bridges between people of distinct parts of the world as it happens in many cities of the world such as Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, New York, etc… all cosmopolitan cities. What we would like to recapture on the radio is this aspect of a metropolis.”
Groovalizacion web_radio is a non-profit organization with a head office located in Dublin and active members based in London, Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Kansas City. It offers a 24 hour music selection giving voice to the new musical scenes. It also publishes monthly music reviews and artist interviews translated in four languages by its multi-cultural team: French, Portuguese, Spanish and English. Groovalizacion web_radio broadcasts worldwide with a growing audience in Europe, South America and the USA.
About the collective Groovalizacion
Groovalizacion project comes from a radio programme called « Musicas Migratorias » (migratory music) on UPV Radio Valencia, Spain, in 2006. This social and artistic initiative aimed at promoting communication between alien cultures through art and instigating integration and dialogue amongst our multicultural societies. It has developed to become a collective of DJs (DJ Izem, DJ Cucurucho, DJ Cheech and Kiko de Gallo) and a radio available to all on the internet.
