Ill Nino

On their first two albums, Ill Ninocrafted songs out of crushing riffs, surging beats and urgent vocals. They then took those songs and infused themwith elements of their Latino heritage, including tribal percussion, flamenco guitars and Spanish lyrics. But as innovative and refreshing as theirsound was, Ill Nino till felt somewhat constrained by self-imposed limitations. So, for their third album, One Nation Underground, the band decidedto act on impulse and do what ever felt natural, even if it seemed unconventional.

"We wanted to make a record that would make us happy as musicians first and foremost," says vocalist Cristian Machado. By stretching theirboundaries and catering only to themselves, Ill Nino were able to create music that broke new ground and reflected the savagery, rage,disillusionment, beauty and melancholy the band members felt within. "There was nothing holding us back this time," drummer Dave Chavarri says."We wanted to let it rip and jam on different Latin rhythms and see where it led us.

Ill Nino is:Cristian Machado – VocalsDiego Verduzco – Rhythm GuitarAhrue Luster – Lead Guitar Lazaro Pina – Bass Dave Chavarri – Drums Daniel Couto – Percussion





While Ill Ni񯠨ave always been in touch with their Latin roots, on One Nation Underground they blend Hispanic flavors and styles with more fluidityand confidence than ever. Chavarri explains, "We listened to a lot of old salsa and merengue rhythms and beats as well as a lot of Afro Cuban andSanteria rhythms." All of those seemingly disparate elements are blended seamlessly thanks to Laz Pina's Salsa-infused bass lines, guitarists AhrueLuster and Jardel Paisante's infectious acoustic guitar work, and Danny Couto's tribal percussive attack. « hide
