Free Outdoor Show
Place des festivals
MUTEK’s very first free, outdoor concert – right in the heart of downtown Montreal – featuring the indelible Latin rhythms of SEÑOR COCONUT & HIS ORCHESTRA, accompanied by Argenis Brito! Señor Coconut is but one of the many faces of legendary German producer Uwe Schmidt, one of the world’s most respected electronic musicians and a longtime acolyte of the MUTEK Festival. World-renowned for his stunning 2000 album “El Baile Alemán”, which saw him rendering nine classic Kraftwerk singles in Latin styles such as the Cha-Cha-Cha, Merengue, and Cumbia, SEÑOR COCONUT & HIS ORCHESTRA have since become a very popular live act featuring nearly a dozen musicians and a mastery of crowd-pleasing Electrolatino rhythms.
Opening the concert, three veterans of the Montreal music scene – Jean-Phi Goncalves, Alex McMahon, and Martin Lizotte – join forces as LE GOLDEN.
