La vida es ritmo
In the show of the uninhibited Catalonian group, “Camut Band” life hurtles by to the rhythm of drums. “la vida es ritmo” is the title of the previous show, one of the most enthusiastic spectaculor events of the last years. The title/slogan summarizes a philosophy of life that is at the base of each new creation. They demonstrate that life is rhythm, in fact, with the group’s six performers beating out a rousing show. Their performances are a pure state of dance and rhythm. “Camut” mixes, for more than an hour, various kinds of sounds, afro-jazz-tap dance, jungle and flamenco.
The original experience of CAMUT BAND was born in 1995 from the collaboration Rafael and Lluís Mendez, emergent choreographers and dancers, and Toni Español. After having debuted in 2001 with huge success in Barcelona and being invited to the Edinburgh “Fringe Festival”, where they got 5 stars from the critics, ”LA VIDA ES RITMO” began its international trajectory garnering unanimous acknowledgment for their very real artistic talents and creativity from the critics and the unconditional roaring applause of audiences in New York, Toronto, New Haven, and Hamburg.
Meanwhile as they toured to Taiwan, Germany Spain, and the United States, CAMUT BAND formed a second company that toured to the Arab Emirates. ”LA VIDA ES RITMO” participated in the “Festival Grec” in Barcelona and in different forums in Morocco, Miami, and Belgium. They returned in 2003 and 2004 to the Edinburgh “Fringe Festival where they completely sold out, receiving each time 5 stars from the critics. CAMIUT BAND has triumphed in the last few years in some of the most important festivals in the world, having recently presented “LA VIDA ES RITMO” in the London’s West End at the Lyric Theatre, in Germany, and Denmark.
