“The astronaut is one of the few individuals who gets an opportunity to see the earth as a whole from above and by doing that a new sense of being part of a big picture is brought upon him”.

This new vision is what has inspired Andres Jimenez who is a drummer, percussionist, arranger, song writer and composer from Bogota Colombia and who is based in New York city since 2000: “Dilemastronauta is my attempt to depict the Astronaut’s dilemma which is -I am from here but also from there, I am from everywhere… it is the immigrants dilemma here on earth, I try to translate this feeling through sounds and visual art.”

Dilemastronauta’s sound is always evolving and changing with the years as different social, cultural and political issues influence the band. But one thing does not change and that is the commitment to play new music, free music, honest music that reflects a world not bounded by borders or nationality. 2011, Dilemastronauta released an album by the titled of “Astronauta en Tierra”
