One of the original catalysts of Latinx music in NewYork City, MAKU Soundsystem has been the connective tissue for several creative projects, bands and community roots for over a decade. As a group with a rotating membership, they’ve recorded multiple albums both DIY and for worldwide labels. Throughout their various iterations, the heart and mission of the ensemble has consistently built bridges, rather than tearing them down, remaining a remarkable beacon of positivity in a consistently competitive environment. The inspiring atmosphere has nurtured several notable musicians and acts over the years, including members of Combo Chimbita, Dilemastronauta, Bulla en el Barrio, KUYE, Leon Brothers and Prince of Queens.
this stripped down trio is an ode to the creative source of their core members, lead singer & bassist Juan Ospina, drummer Andres Jimenez and guitarist Camilo Rodriguez. play with an experience and restraint that only enhances the end result of their music. It’s a free driven approach born from familiar experimentation, rather than modern day trends; the band is freely driven to the ritualistic movements of rhythms and melodies; a dosis of good music that groves with a touch of analog FX, synthesized glitches and atmospheric coros.
