Hello friends! John Dell and Mauro Lopez co-founders of Austin, psychedelic cumbia band, El Combo Oscuro return to the show for episode 1267! Their brand new single, "Despegue" drops this Thursday, 4/20. "Despegue" is one of two songs they recorded Austin Music Foundation's Artist Development Program at The Bubble with Chris "Frenchie" Smith and Einar Pedersen at the helm. Go to elcombooscuro.com for music, show dates and more. We have a great conversation about recording "Despegue", their experience in the Artist Development Program, getting started rehearsing in parks, psychedelic cumbia music in Austin, finding their sound, their writing process and much more. I had a great time catching up with Mauro and John. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
