Music meets theatre in a weird-and-exciting setup with macabre, noisy and peculiar elements.

From Guadalajara, Mexico comes a sonic and visual art gang to be reckoned with. Descartes a Kant is a darkly illuminating experience who will leave a lasting impression!

This band has been together for over 12 years, and they have built a special show, to say the least.

Surf, noise, punk, swing and carnival-like arrangements are just some of the ingredients in the band known as Descartes a Kant. They obviously dig philosophers as well.

If you like Mr. Bungle, Dresden Dolls and the like, you’re in for a treat.

When they hit the stage, mayhem gets unleashed. On reviewer has witnessed the following: Guitarist/vocalists Sandrushka Petrova and Dafne Macías lead the group with frenetic energy, performing unison moves amidst flashing emergency lights, surrounded by the rest of the band members in hazmat suits.

Will it be like this again? Who knows… Nothing is certain in the universe of Descartes a Kant.

Their high-powered live show and deep embrace of varied sounds and art expressions have helped Descartes a Kant secure gigs around the world with a diverse set of heroes, such as Sonic Youth, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Slayer, and Mike Patton/Dave Lombardo’s Dead Cross.

The band has released three albums. Their third, Victims of Love Propaganda, was the first to be released internationally. Give it a listen, be confused, stay open-minded and then catch Descartes a Kant when they play Roskilde Festival 2019.
