Amuleto Manuela

Amuleto Manuela is a sound artist based in Berlin. Her process-based work – which includes the crafting of soundscapes, sound sculptures, DJ sets, listening collective practices and radio shows – all builds on listening as its core principle, and arises as a context-driven response to the search for spaces of encounter. Born and bred in what we today know as Colombia, she addresses diaspora and identity questions in her work, with a scrutinising will to unlearn and remember other ways of inhabiting our collective life experience.  Amuleto Manuela’s sonic weaving has been featured in a variety of exhibitions and institutions, such as Kunsthaus Dahlem / Brücke-Museum’s celebrated Transition Exhibition and museo de la democracia at nGbk in Berlin. Her work equally featured on the dance floors of Fusion Festival, The Listening Biennial by Errant Sound and was performed in Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid.
