ARTIST OF THE WEEK

Patricio: One Man, One Inner Monkey and His Many Other Sides

Patricio: One Man, One Inner Monkey and His Many Other Sides

Over the years Bali has been blessed as one of the places that amazing musicians from all over the world have included in their bucket list as one of the places where they love to share their music and inspirations. The stories told about this place have definitely lured quite some artists so far, and some of them went and fall in love with the island and ended up calling it one of their homes.

 

This week’s artist of the week is an excellent example of beautiful artists who totally got charmed by the spell of Bali and decided to stay (much) longer. Meet Patricio!!!  Known for his many avatars in his pretty impressive long list of ongoing bands and projects that have enriched the live music stages all around the island’s most respected venues, this guy has lots of amazing things to share!

 

Hailing from Chile, Patricio has started his journey in both aspects of his music and life here since three years ago. He started off touring around Indonesia with one of the country’s most-respected legend, Iwan Fals, and soon after that his face was one of the most familiar faces in the music scene of Bali.

 

Big hair, “batik” shirt and a big smile on his face; that pretty much describes this easy going multi-talented guy, except for the fact that he is also all about the guitar, bass, kora, vocals, different types of percussion, keyboard, amazing blends of sounds, and though that’s quite a few already, I can still go and on. He is really a crowd warming soulful performer and he is known for his spontaneity on stage and his ability to collaborate with other musicians like it is the most natural thing for him to do.

 

During these past three years spent creating and performing in Bali, Patricio has been associated to many great names such as Susu Ibu, Supa Kalulu, Gypsy Cavemen, Mamba Hitam and that’s not even all of it. In Gypsy Cavemen and Mamba Hitam, he and his band mates really go all out. The end result presented to the crowd is a super dynamic sound of an eclectic mix of slamming funk, rock and dance grooves completed by hints and sprinkles of whatever these awesome free spirits add while they are being spontaneous on stage.

 

Mamba Hitam is Patricio’s most recent band in which he teams up with Komang and Krisna, two very talented Balinese guys who also have been known to perform and collaborate with different bands and artists as well. To them three, Mamba Hitam is a form of brotherhood where they can explore, create and express their latino soul funk reggae-ish sound very freely, as the chemistry among them really allows a spontaneous give and take, where they can go insane free-styling without even having to discuss what their performance would be like before going on stage. They are very passionate and the energy that they create is just powerful and unarguably moves the crowd to dance their asses off.

 

We were lucky to have had the chance of an exclusive interview and live session of his work as Gypsy Cavemen with this guy who claims that his inner animal is a monkey, whose ambition is to jump around branches of different genres in the tree that figuratively translates into music. Make sure not to miss the interview and live session on Artist of the Week, Sunday July 6 at 12 noon Bali Time! Re-runs on the same day at 10 pm and Monday at 10 am. And in the mean time, enjoy their tracks at 7 am, 12 am, 7 pm and 12 pm daily for the entire week! Rock on, people!!!

Damien and Rosemary

Damien and Rosemary, sounds from the dark trees. That's what they say, and they most definitely have a point there.
