Written and recorded at different locations in the city, this e.p. started its life as demo recordings for future projects(one of which is a new kickstarter funded album featuring my group, El Conjunto).

I virtually tracked everything in my bedroom with the exception of the drum tracks and in some cases, the horns(courtesy of the fella's). There are many songs that didn't make the process this time but they will resurface in a different form on the Conjunto album.

This small offering is a celebration of music, culture, and friendship. I am thankful to all the musicians who contributed their time and efforts to this collection.

I hope the listeners will give it a few spins and meditate on the sounds, words, and vibe we humbly offer to share with you. thanks for listening-D.Q.

Damian Quinones Brooklyn, New York

Akin to a mix tape made from his uncle's old vinyl collection, Damian Quiñones and his band "El Conjunto" are sonically funky, expansive and colorful. The horn driven band percolates with percussion and a twin guitar attack that brings the all original set alive with flavor and gusto. ... more
