How we met:
We met Felipe Carmona and his friend Alejandro Velasquez in Medellin at the end of our trip in Colombia in an area called las comunas. After recording mainly traditional instruments during our trip we fell in love with the sound and energy of Felipe’s playing on harmonica and guitar. Felipe recorded on “La Tierra del Olvido” and on “Groove in G,” the international jam session released on our last album.
