Uará is a duo of transmedia art and artistic technologies (CL-BO) focused on the use of new media. We produce Global Bass music with Afro-Latin American roots rhythms, mainly Peruvian festejo, rescuing the identity of the mestizo and Afro-descendant sound.
Uará is also a laboratory for creative technological development, where the ideas that are presented for each performance are tested, carrying out a teaching and research workshop. With 5 years of live career, and 2 albums, Uará has developed different presentation formats of musical, luminic, and visual type for their shows through creative programming.
Uará seeks to innovate within music by putting emphasis on sounds, and visual is audioreactive, complementing them with light art. Uará uses different programming tools and visual sound synchronization. Part of the work also consists of giving software and hardware workshops for technologies applied to the arts.
