Conjunto Los Pochos

Call it Tex-Mex, Norteño, or Conjunto. The Los Angeles based Conjunto Los Pochos grabs the music by its roots and runs with it. Expect to dance once you hear the accordion sing. (and a shot of tequila wouldn't hurt) ¡¡¡Aaahuuaaa......

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Great stuff! What a thrill stepping out of our cultural vapor-lock for a genuine, soulful music that needs no mainstream. 'Conjunto Los Pochos' is a musical treasure to behold!"
-- M. Cummings, Heart of the Underground --

This debut album from Conjunto Los Pochos highlights the talent and energy that drives this Los Angeles-based Conjunto. On this album, Otoño Luján played a three-row Hohner accordion and sang lead (primera voz), while Elliott Baribeault recorded the Bajo Sexto and Bass tracks and sang harmony (segunda voz). Fellow CalArts grad, Blake Colie, recorded drums on the album.

The co-founders of the group, Otoño Luján and Elliott Baribeault, started playing traditional conjunto music as a duet at backyard barbeques and for anyone who wanted to enjoy Conjunto music. But Conjunto Los Pochos was not formally launched until the summer of 1997. Since then, they have performed dance halls, weddings, concerts and a variety of venues all over Southern California and across the country.

This CD was recorded at California Institute of the Arts in 1999. All the songs are traditional standards with the exception of Los Barrios, which was written by Raul "Little Man" Martinez.

Recording Credits:
Otoño Luján - Button-accordion & vocals
Elliott Baribeault - Bajo sexto, bass & vocals
Blake Colie - Drums

AAAAAHUUUUUAAAAA!! I really enjoy it!
Otono & group,

I really enjoyed this CD. Being 'Tejana' I have grown up listening to conjunto music with my father. Your group captures the essence of what is found at the heart & soul of the conjunto influence. Keep the 'tejano' ambiance coming my way!!
