4 Extraños en D.C. came from the creative scope of Bogota-native Jaime Moreno back in 2005, around the time Youtube was on the rise to become the most accessible tool for us procrastinators to dwell in.

Guns N’ Roses, one of the most iconic and well-known hard rock acts of the world has reunited. The legendary line-up that made hit songs like ‘November Rain,’ ‘Patience,’ and ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ humming in your head from a very early age; has reunited once more to give it their all on stage in 2016.

It seems “never” turned out to be 18 years and it is now a reality which will be brought to you in Colombia, in the beautiful city of Medellín in late November.

Should it be only applicable to literary and film texts that deal with tropes of haunting and trauma set in a gloomy atmosphere, or might it meaningfully be applied to other cultural forms of production, such as music or animation? Can television shows aimed at children be considered Gothic? What about food? When is something “Gothic” and when is it “horror”? Is there even a difference?
A hybrid of classical and modern music has always been a challenge. For those that seek to listen to something new and refreshing, these mash-ups are quite rare, mostly emanating from fusions between jazz and other traditional musical genres. There are few modern musical acts that take the classical, avantgarde musical approach. The first group of musicians that made the breakthrough were Finnish Apocalyptica with their more metallic adapted method to one of the warmest sounds there is in violoncello, but not everyone likes the darker tones they tend to play.
