Kinski Gallo is a seasoned veteran of the international music scene. When touring with his rock band, Monte Negro, he shared the stage with a variety of mega-acts ranging from Gwen Stefani and NIN, to Cafe Tacuba, to Zoe and Enanitos Verdes.
Originally hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico, Gallo found his early Latin music influences within his own big family, looking primarily to his father who was, himself, an accomplished Mariachi singer. He was surrounded at all times by traditional romantic ballads, boleros, and nortenas. In his early teens, he moved to Venice, CA where he was further exposed to all that American radio had to offer: rock-n-roll, new wave, punk rock, and electronica. Over the past years, Kinski Gallo has, at various times, made music from every one of these genres, all the while striving to stay true to both his Latin American roots and to his contemporary Anglo inspirations.
So finally, with his eponymous solo project, Gallo is excited to delve deep into the powerful Latin beats that get us all moving and infuse them with the newest, freshest sounds resulting in a perfect blend for the modern day palate.
