COSMICA BANDIDA develops its projects with a holistic approach based on the contexts and political views of both artists.
Check the installation projects:
The Project started as an experimental playground debuting at the Akademiegalerie in Munich, the early works of the band are oriented to the atmospheric and ambient sounds, the creation of fields and layers, abstract compositions that eventually will drive the project to where is today, a mix of intensions coming from the research of traditional Colombian music, psychedelic Turkish and the contemporary explorations of ambient and electronic.
"Entran Bandidos Edits" is a compilation of this experimental explorations.
