When I started to make the Sursystem Magazine I was to doing a workshop in my original city: Cali, it was a long time ago, when I was in the university and when I believed that I could change the world. The idea of the Sursystem magazine wasn’t just mine, there was another person, my friend from the university Harold, better known in Cali as The Zudakaboy; he was doing a workshop with me about Manu Chao and the world music and in the middle of this job we started to think about a magazine where we could to write about music, globalization and “mestizaje”, then, we started to build, first, the idea about the publication and then, the topics and finally, the magazine title.
THE FIRST SURSYSTEM 3R IN 2018
CURRENTLY IN CALI, COLOMBIA
We worked together with the magazine for around four years, we made together 3 issues and then, He went apart to start to make his own Magazine that is called Satellite Sursystem. The last number of Satellite Sursystem is about the Salsa Music and its history in Cali, Colombia and the Caribe. My friend Harold sent me it with my sister around 6 months ago, and it is a beautiful publication with very interesting essays, articles, and stories, also, the graphic design that was made by Carlos Carrillo -in my opinion, the best graphic designer in Cali and also in Colombia- is really amazing, beautiful, awesome... I don’t have more words to describe their beauty.
SURSYSTEM 3R BACK COVER
The way that I chose to said thank you to my friend for sending me the last edition of his publication was to making a Magazine Sursystem 3R to him. I sent it to him with my sister when she was back to Colombia around five months ago. I hope Harold will enjoy my magazine that is handmade such as I enjoyed his magazine when I got it. His magazine Sursystem was the first magazine that I made in 2018.
