ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heavy fuzz-driven Latin funk with a hard hitting brass-section. Inspired by the sounds of Cameroon's Manu Dibango and Johnny Pate's "Shaft In Africa" score.

Mestizo Beat is a collective of musicians based out of Los Angeles who compose and perform music influenced by the early 1970’s era of funk, soul, afro-beat, and afro-cuban genre. Formed by lead guitarist Aquiles “Lito” Magaña along with his brother Gus Magaña on drums. These two would come to share their passion and love for this era of music and become the driving core for the group. Influenced by the greats such as James Brown, Fred Wesley and the J.B.’s, Parliament Funkadelic, the Meters, and WAR.

The word Mestizo means the mix and blend of cultural heritage; you cannot find a better word to describe the blending of music, environment, and roots that takes place in Los Angeles, which is one of the most diverse regions in the world. The band members come from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds that enrich the music created and performed.

What is one to expect from a live performance of Mestizo Beat? One can expect an explosive dance party of heavy hitting rhythms that unify the audience and band into one pulse of love. The full ensemble also includes a brass section, organ player, and percussionist. Their sound creates a freight train of upbeat rhythms and groove that transcends their listeners to a state of exhilaration and rejoice. The beauty of diversity and cultural differences are embraced to boil into one universal meaning of love, rhythm, dance, and soul.
