Empezemos el año conectando a traves del poder de la musica, con las hermosas melodias y vibras sanadoras de Maria Jose Montijo combinadas con los mensajes y los super bailables ritmos de Makrú!
Landing in San Francisco from different parts of the world, various characters got together for different motives and goals at the end of 2008 and became Makrú, a musical tool to express their points of view, ideals and support the causes they believe in, chasing equality and unifying people along the way while doing what they love.
With an acoustic flavor that mixes Rumba Flamenca, Ska, Reggae, Cumbia, and other global beats, lyrics in Spanish and English that bring reality, fiction, hope, and joy Makrú sounds like smashing the earth and playing it on a record player.
“My Crew” is:
Jenny Rodriguez: Vocals, vihuela, percussion
Raúl Vargas: Cajón, Vocals
Vinicio Peñate: Bass
Bob Sanders: Guitar
Haluk Kecelioglu: Oud and Violin

Maria Jose Montijo
Maria Jose Montijo’s life changed in 2009, on a beach in her native Puerto Rico, when a friend gave her a used Celtic harp. Since then she has been composing música esotérica tropical inspired by her love for the Caribbean, her traditional medicine practice, our cosmic nature, as well as our collective liberation.
