Comunité - A community of music enthusiasts in the Mayan Riviera that was born within a group of local Mexican DJs, producers, and curators – which in contrast with other projects, promotes cultural unity, and social/environmental responsibility as paramount values.
The way we interact with our environment channels into an ever-changing variable where new doors open and others close. Ideas constantly emerge in this world of practically unlimited access to information and stimuli. To live and understand such a world, our emotional intelligence becomes decisive and the need to delve into our roots arises. It is vital to develop a responsible awareness within the importance of energy, nature, and human relations – all geared towards cultural evolution. There is a demand for a sense of belonging and collective identity - a need to speak the same language. Art and music have always been the perfect vehicles for this and the context where they happen have become part of art itself. This is why an idea of creating a timeless community of music enthusiasts in the Mayan Riviera was born within a group of 100% local mexican producers and curators, in which in contrast with other projects, cultural unity and social and environmental responsibility are paramount.
The year 2016 is a year of light in which many doors have opened and many have closed. The first edition of Comunité was developed around a collective demand to integrate a visión of a unified cosmos, looking to find a common territory with a collective identity and language. A seed was planted for the creation of a platform and a space where music is in charge of building a new road a path where we will find ourselves like members of a global community focused on the psychological, physical, and spiritual well-being in addition to the exposure of creative energies to innovate.
By undestanding and celebrating the impact of this initiative, we will come back with a second gathering on the 6th of January, 2017, in order to push our mission of social unity, cultural and environmental responsibility through a 100% auto-sustainable festival. In 2017, enter Comunité.
We will celebrate our encounter within the Dos Ojos park, a natural complex known for its archeological zone, diving activities, apnea, exploration, and intimate approach with nature. Until now, the park’s cenotes (or underground water caves) stand as the most important in the world. The park counts with 6 cenotes and the most important underground river of the continent. With this approach to nature, we will integrate our community with the Mayan jungle, bringing an integral experience to the ecological mission it supports.
Know in antiquity as Zama, which in Mayan means sunrise or dawn, Tulum was a walled city of the Pre-Columbian Mayan culture located along the east cost of Yucatan in what now is the area of Quintana Roo in Southeast Mexico, reaching its height between the 13th and 15th centuries. According to the numerous records in murals and other works found in the buildings of the city, it is considered that Tulum was an important centre of cult for what was called "Descendent God".
“Comunité felt like a lightning rod
for unique experiences.” -
The Mexican carribean is losing the battle against climate change and the human footprint on the environment. About 75%-80% of the coral density has been lost. This is why this year we invite our community to take action.In order to keep promoting the ethical tourism and the preservation of different Ecosystems in the Mayan Riviera, Comunité will work alongside Restore Coral to offer promotion and monetary support to preserve the oceanic corals of the regions. We will have an option within the ticket sales on Resident Advisor to donate 5 USD to this cause
