WEDNESDAY AT 8 PM – 11:45 PM
A Thanksgiving Eve Cumbia Party with ¿Qiensave?
He began by fusing the sounds of several cross-genre musicians from throughout Los Angeles County.
The name of the band itself is a testament to these humble beginnings. While hinting at the uncertainty of gathering so many artists to collaborate, the name Qiensave? also evokes the exciting prospect of reality’s infinite possibilities. Eventually, thanks to mobile studios, Qiensave? was able to record and produce their first mix tape, headed by Qien and Jason Rosenburg from Ancestry of Sound.
The result was a patchwork of various musicians’ organic and synthetic beats, ranging from lyric-heavy coffee shop melodies to psychedelic soundscapes. The mix tape and title-track, “Bella ciudad,” circulated and captured the attention of many listeners, including director Eric Stoltz, who used it as background music on the NBC show, Quarterlife.
