The journey of Cumbia, the new cartoon novel by Davide Toffolo

BUH 2019! starts with the presentation of the book of the frontman of the gods Three merry dead boys. A comic book about migrant music born in Colombia built on an 8,500 kilometer long journey that the author realized between January and February. An event entirely dedicated to the rediscovery of an authentic and popular musical genre.

A comics novel closely linked to music, which comes out five years after "Graphic novel is dead", comic autobiography that in 2014 told "the life far from any cliché" of the cartoonist and frontman of the Three happy dead boys.

In November 2018 Davide Toffolo instead came out with "Il cammino della cumbia", published by the publishing house Oblomov-The ship of Theseus (216 color pages).

The book, which will be presented on Friday 18 January at BUH! in an event entirely dedicated to the rediscovery of the Cumbia, it is comparable to other works of auto fiction such as "Pasolini", "The White King" and the same "Graphic novel is dead", all signed by Toffolo. A documentary on migrant music born in Colombia built on an 8,500 kilometer long journey that the author made last January and February.

A survey that starts from Buenos Aires and arrives in Cartagena, Colombia, where Cumbia was born. More than 100 musicians met, adventures, culture and history of a popular America held together by a dance. La Cumbia, in fact.

The presentation will include a DJ set proposed by the author, to tell the musical content of the book. A musical journey around South America, where Toffolo flanked by Nahuel Martinez aka Paquiano, will bring the audience to the rediscovery of their "inner forest".

Before the DJ set, the live of the Americans. A reference group for the Latin community in Florence, the Americans are local heroes. Their repertoire crosses the entire Latin American continent: from the Amazonian rhythms, to the cumbia, to the Inca ritual songs of the Andes.

Accompanying the event is a dinner organized by the Anelli Mancanti association to discover typical South American dishes.
