Tremor, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, explores South American folklore while experimenting with technology.
With over 700 applicants, only 30 were chosen, and Tremor made the cut. With an official showcase at Womex 2010, Tremor is bringing the future sound of South America to the world.
Womex is the planet's largest world music conference, where all the industry's players go to see what's new and innovative, kind of like a SXSW for world music acts. And as these conferences go, bands have to pay their own way. And Argentina to Denmark is a long way!
We're looking for help to front the costs of getting there. We're working hard to book a tour with more dates to cover the large expense of travel, but we are not assured of covering our costs. We're calling on music fans to help an indie band out.

Who is Tremor?
Tremor is hands down one of the most exciting bands in all South America. There is a reason there is only one live band on the ZZK label, and seeing Tremor perform you will quickly understand why. Tremor is Leonardo Martinelli, a multi-instrumentalist and composer with ten years of experience scoring film and theater in Argentina. Together with Camilo Carabajal and Gerardo Farez, Tremor deftly combines IDM with the sound of Northern Argentina where guitars, drums and other instruments breathe to the beat of computer bleeps. Tremor performs live with native Argentine instruments like the charango guitar, the bombo legüero drum, keyboards and synthesizers.
