EL MAS GRANDE DE MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA


Direct from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, picó sound system culture has arrived in Australia.

Picó are huge, hand-painted fluorescent speaker stacks, often found blasting tropical music in the neighbourhoods of cities such as Barranquilla, Cartagena and Santa Marta.

EL GRAN MONO is Melbourne's own picó, painted by the great Colombian sound system artist  William “El Maestro” Gutierrez and the first of it's kind in the world to be built outside Colombia.

EL GRAN MONO acknowledge we operate our sound system from the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation.

We acknowledge First Nations people as the traditional custodians of this country, whose cultures are among the oldest living cultures in human history.

We pay respect to the Elders of these communities, past and present, and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that colonisation is an ongoing process.
