Come celebrate the release of Chócala’s debut album with special guests BoomChld, Celeste Moonchild, and DJ Shaanti.
Chócala is the sonic amalgamation of latin rhythms, rock, and jazz with a touch of tropical psychedelia, resulting in an experimental, yet approachable, sound with an infectious groove. While layering spacey, ethereal tones on her synthesizers, Liza Ortiz sings about the complexities of the spectrums of mental health and the importance of radical self-acceptance and compassion as Michael Anderson weaves his harmonizing saxophone notes into her melodies with, at times, playful yet precise, delivery. Davey Blackburn on percussion and Claudio Ortiz on bass guitar ground each song, with bombastic rhythms and riffs.
Chócala’s new album will be available for purchase on September 1 for a special release price of $15 (regular price will be $25, after the release date).
