Bolivia, officially The Plurinational State of Bolivia, is a landlocked country in central South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the north and east, Paraguay and Argentina to the south, and Chile and Peru to the west. Prior to European colonization, the Bolivian territory was a part of the Inca Empire, which was the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. After declaring independence in 1809, 16 years of war followed before the establishment of the republic, named for Simón Bolívar, on August 6, 1825. Bolivia has struggled through periods of political instability, dictatorships and economic woes.
Bolivia is a democratic plurinational republic, divided into nine departments. Its geography is varied from the peaks of the Andes in the west, to the eastern lowlands, situated within the Amazon Basin. The Bolivian population, estimated at 9 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Mestizos, Europeans and to a lesser extent Asians and Africans. The main language spoken is Spanish, although the Aymara and Quechua languages are also common. The large number of different cultures within Bolivia has contributed greatly to a wide diversity in fields such as art, cuisine, literature and music.
The psy-trance scene in Bolivia started in 1996 with some memorable parties produced by Ultraflecha Productions. Many new producers appear on the scene within the next two years like Boltek, Psyworks, Moonchild and Neurotrance. Later in 1998, The Earthdance arrived to stay as the most important psy-trance event for the community. Organized in the year 2000 was the first rave parade, named Lapazparade that attracted about 2000 people. Some important artist played in festivals around Bolivia; there were names like Vibrasphere and X-Dream during 2002 and 2003.
Andean Tribe Records
Psytrance makes its first move in the Bolivian Andes at the end of the 90’s. Andean DJ (Jimmy Luksi?) takes part in the underground trance movement in 2001 with the Amanda’s Dreamscape Crew organizing open air festivals in the mountain forests of the Andes. At the end of 2007 begins a new era with the creation of Andean Tribe which includes a great variety of members coming from all over the world and cultures. Full-on is the tribe’s specialty. Through a certain amount of festivals and events which have already been held, Andean Tribe is proposing a new musical, psychedelic art and open space atmosphere for all kinds of creative forms and essences.
