Still from UpClose 2022

The New Monos | UpClose 2022


“For us, being a part of UpClose 2022 is an honour; sharing music with our local audience and coworkers is what we have missed the most last couple of years. In addition, this allows us to break the stereotypes about Latin people only playing Salsa.

We have lived in Darebin for 10 years, and we are happy to see live music events, especially in the Preston Market.

We felt so welcome in the Preston Market, a lot of people stopped to listen to the band and watch the performance, asking questions about where we are from and about the instruments.

The songs we played were super relaxed, acoustic-style fitting the market creating a nice atmosphere for us to play comfortably and feel welcome.”

UpClose 2022 is proudly presented by MAV in partnership with Harmonic Whale.
