Systema Solar is a musical and visual collective from Colombia that was created in 2006. Made up of rappers, techno DJs, percussionists and a video artist, they call their shows "Berbenautika", inspired by the "pikos" - large mobile sound systems - and "la verbena" or traditional fiesta popular in Colombia. They aim to project joy and freedom in a time of injustice and political corruption, and to revitalize Afro-Colombian roots music, such as cumbia, champeta, and bellerengue, by mixing in elements of hip hop, house, break beats, scratching and live video. In 2010 they played festivals in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Belgium, Germany and France, which led to a second European tour in 2011. They released a self-titled debut disc in 2010.
