Martín Better Longo is an Ecuadorian who immigrated with his family to the United States at the tender age of 8 years old.
As a young adult, he moved from Boulder to New Orleans to immerse himself in the city’s diverse and explosive music scene. His current project, Fruta Brutal, emerged from his exposure to Latin American music through his extensive travels in South America and the alternative rock and jazz he grew up with. The vision behind Fruta Brutal culminates in the celebration of mixed race, mestizaje, by synthesizing Latin America rhythms with popular U.S genres. Fruta Brutal has performed at the iconic Tipitina’s venue of New Orleans, as well as immigration and social justice related events, such as the Latinx Festival of Colorado and the Immigrants are Beautiful Tour, opening for the nationally acclaimed band; Making Movies.
Having recently returned to Boulder, Martín is eager to offer his trilingual repertoire to new audiences. He made his Fruta Brutal Boulder debut at the iconic Fox Theatre, and is currently recording a series of singles with drummer Michel Stahli, percussionist Leo Muñoz, and bassist Matt Cantor. His songbook showcases an eclectic collection of styles ranging from original compositions in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Spanglish.
