Los Dorados Los Dorados

They belong to a new generation of musicians in Mexico and Argentina. The name Los Dorados is meant to commemorate the legendary guerilla troops of General Francisco Villa, one of the most important leaders of the Mexican Revolution in the north of Mexico. Los Dorados were founded in the summer of 2003, inspired mainly by the wish to compose, improvise and play there own music together. The musical formation of the four band members is primarily rooted in their common Jazz background. They all are very aware of the large historical tradition and the constant transformation which this kind of music is undergoing. Los Dorados enrich their music with diverse musical influences, such as chamber music, electronic music, rock, funk and all the music they grow up listening. They create what can be described as the “Dorado sound” in reference to their search for an personal and honest kind of interpretation. Yet they do not have any ambition to create a new style or type of music. They rather try to constantly open up to a new exploration of sound.
