Salt Cathedral plays Berlin

Friday, March 25, 2016 ~ Salt Cathedral headlines a show with Ryan Egan and Corbu at Berlin, a tiny basement club underneath 2A at 25 Avenue A in the East Village at 8pm. This is the underground (literally). It’s a bit like New York used to be.

Salt Cathedral

Juliana Ronderos and Nicolas Losada are from Bogotá, Colombia. Colombian life is filled with music and dance.

Many young Bogotános make interesting music. We have watched some of them get big.

Salt Cathedral’s sound is Juliana’s ethereal voice floating over Losada’s spare electronics. The music captures the insecurity of young love or finding your way in a foreign land. Their videos are worth watching.

This is a young band coming up out of the Brooklyn underground. Let’s see what happens.

The Salt Cathedral Shrine

The band’s name comes from an underground shrine originally built in the 1930s by miners at an ancient salt mine in Zipaquirá, Colombia.

A new cathedral was built inside the old mine in the 1990s. In includes a sculpture “La Creation del Hombre” (The creation of man) by Carlos Enrique Rodríguez. Today it is a popular tourist attraction that is also used by some as a church.
