ABOUT

From Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“Rhythm with Signs” is a signature system created by Santiago Vazquez who is a multi-instrumentalist and a producer. "Conductor" manipulates over a hundred different kinds of hand signs, and giving instructions, enabling improvisation by multiple players. Because it is expressed by feeling the audience’s energy, a session that is once in a lifetime experience is created and that is this signature system’s greatest attraction.
Events introducing the sign system, like “LA BOMBA DE TIEMPO”, a percussion event since 2006 which 2000 people visits every week, and “LA GRANDE” which invites players beyond the crowded genre, gets popularity and has earned high praise in local Buenos Aires.

Shishido Kavka, who learned drums in Buenos Aires, is active as a model, actress and a drum vocalist produces the rhythm event “el tempo” using the sign system. It will be held in its own organization under the guidance of Vazquez, the founder of the sign system.

Shishido, turning back to the origin, take challenge on “el tempo”,
an event that deserves attention, a new opening of her stage as a musician.

CONCEPT

Audience and players.
Once in a lifetime experience.
The heartbeat gathered by a coincidence called “today”.
Before long, the heartbeat forms a layer, and sets a wave of rhythm.
Guided by the conductor’s hand sign, the wave will push and pull, with rhythms getting on the roaring waves at times.
Leave yourself up to the waves, and regain “yourself” that was forgotten.
With a session of rhythms that everyone is born with, a new “music” proposal for adults starts out.

message from KAVKA

Anywhere in the world
Rhythm is overflowing
And in our every day lives, we listen to it with our body and our heart.

When you just hear the word “Latin Rhythm”
Many Japanese people may not be familiar
However, with you all and with my team
We would like to take action to create our own new “rhythm” to liberate our stereotypes.

“Anyone can join and enjoy music”
Empathizing with the thought of the founder of the sign system, Santiago Vazquez,
Here we start, “el tempo”
