MICROPHONES BY RODE
Hello, I'm Caloncho, from Obregón, Sonora.
I discovered music by interaction with my family, my father used to make us songs and invited us to construct them together as a way to live.
Drumming became my favorite activity during some years, until I decided to experiment with melody. I went back to the guitar that my grandfather had given me years ago and learned to play my favorite songs by Bob Marley, Sublime and many other musical influences.
I recorded the "Homeotermo" demo, and then I worked with Siddharta (ex-teacher and a good friend), as a producer for my music. This is what he has to say:
"Caloncho is a natural born musician with recently discovered talent (by himself and all who surround him). He sent me a demo and I instantly felt it was a musical obligation to work with him.
There are few words to describe the taste he leaves in your ears, my part on this role was to make his imagination come true. I invite you all to listen our afternoons of music, the moment in which notes become descriptive of a character that will make you dance and sweat the feeling of being in the beach forever."
The EP is called "Fruta" and came out in September, 2013. It sounds like everything I've heard since I started, through Mexican folklore, the beach, a little bit of forest and city, learning situations, existence, nostalgia and love for life.
We experimented a lot during this time, with organic sounds and objects that might not be considered as musical instruments, such as waters, fruit, seeds, lighters, etc. I love it and I want you all to hear my music.
