Capitano Barbaconyo is a migrant drag king, musician and producer who has become known in Barcelona and its surroundings for his music, his humor, his vindictive message and his high-quality push-ups💪
Their first album is a tribute to the personal and collective forces that act as a counterweight to the repressive powers. To celebrate political, migrant, and transfeminist dissidence and resistance, Capitano has produced 10 gender-fluid songs with electronic rhythms, alto sax, transverse flute, and some surprises. Some of these songs the public has already seen live and others are new songs🤩 Now to finish the album, all that is needed is a little investment in studio rental and video clip production.
By contributing to this project you are supporting self-managed, migrant and dissident art🌈🦄💖
If you don't have the chance to win a reward, but you want to contribute to the project, follow Capitano Barbaconyo on Instagram and on YouTube. It seems silly, but for artists in the modernity in which we live it is essential to have followers on social networks to get a job.
Capitano Barbaconyo started doing drag in the nursery trying to pass for a boy since he did not feel identified with the girls in the group. At that time he also began to compose. He has the memory of his first songs in an invented language, which he sang to himself and ended up crying because of what those melodies conveyed.
At the age of 15 he began to discover his sexuality, poetry and music, he composed his first songs on the guitar and never stopped composing, producing and recording. At the same time, he got to know the repressive machine of the Russian government up close and began to use music as a political tool. He decided to be a journalist to make visible everything that is not told in the propaganda media. Quickly encountering state censorship, he left the trade and devoted himself entirely to activism and the study of human rights. To earn a living, he played the transverse flute in the subway and put on concerts with his band. Soon after, he had to make a decision that many people in his country have to face: jail or migration.
In the 6 years he has been in Barcelona, he has been active in militancy and artivism in self-managed spaces. He sang in an anarchist gospel choir, played sax in a Balkan orchestra, and participated in other musical projects.
He is currently dedicated to sound with his sonorization project sonidista.org that he has created to add quality sound to alternative parties and migrant and dissident recordings.
He has been performing his drag king performance with his live music since 2019. Now he is preparing a complete show with his own music, stand up comedy, workouts, dance and high technology. After many years of resistance and militancy, he is raising funds to release his first album and video clip to continue perfecting his art and challenging the norm.
