Tarararara, is a series of narratives exploring Cumbia—a popular genre of music in Mexico, where its dance-until-you-drop rhythm is at the center of many familial gatherings. Daniela Cavazos Madrigal pays homage to the heredity of Cumbia by investigating an important part of her cultural identity. She breaks down the language used in Cumbia songs, filtering Spanish lyrics through Google Translate and rediscovers meaning through the distortion. Cavazos Madrigal uses mostly heirlooms belonging to her late grandfathers and relatives, as well personal and found objects, to construct this project. Tarararara is the syllabic manifestation of a quinceañera and carne asada on a Saturday night.
