Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter project!! We are a band playing a music that defies categories, a kind of blend rooted in South American folklore, with flavors of jazz, blues and rock. We've released our first album, Conjuros, at the end of 2008. 

We like to put our stamp on classic songs but we also have our own, delivering a strong message calling for social justice or universal love through the prolific poetry of our main author, Ricardo Cuevas. And our new album is exclusively made of original songs. 

This new album is produced by Yayo Serka (drummer of Lila Downs and Claudia Acuña amongst other accomplishments), assisted by Ben Willis, who is also the band's contrabassist since 2010. And if this was not enough to make the album exciting, we are counting with the participation of great Latin jazz musician friends, such as Sofia Tosello, Sofia ReiKoutsovitis, Natalia Bernal, Eleonora Bianchini and Claudia Acuña all on lead vocals in different songs, as well as appearances by guitarists Eric Kurimski and Juancho Herrera, sax arranger Yosvany Terry and pianist Pablo Vergara bringing their magic to a few songs.

The budget we are asking for will be used to: 

- record the 2nd half of the songs at Soundworks Recording Studios 

mix down 

- master 

- design the packaging  

- press the CD. 

and we hope to achieve this with your help here on Kickstarter. Thank you for your support!
