Catching a Buzz with Chicharra

Basses and drums and rocanrol

During summer months en el alto desierto the hot sun seems permanent and the blue sky infinite. Cicadas—mysterious insects that dwell underground for many years—dig themselves out of the earth. They climb trees and shed the larval skin of youth, becoming animals with powerful wings, and in unison, a tremendous, percussive voice. The drone, the deep buzz that comes from millions of these creatures adds a layer of musical intensity to an environment that is already saturated with color and light and temperature.
