Get Kinky

Another band from Monterrey is out to conquer the world

Kinky, however, began in California, when Lozano and Chairez attended a summer program promoted by the Berklee School of Music. Singer Cerezo signed up when the pair went back to Monterrey. Once the current quintet was established with the inclusion of bassist Cesar Pliego and drummer Gongora -- both responsible for the monolithic dance base that holds the tension in Kinky's music -- they began playing in all kinds of places: art exhibitions, contemporary dance schools, and, of course, small clubs.

Now the goal is to get into record stores, but far from the Latin bins. "To get in the pit and to be able to fight the rest of the bands is the most important thing now," says Chairez. This doesn't mean they don't care about their own territory. "To be able to go out and play your music here or in Europe is a big bonus, but we also want to be known and play in Latin America as much as we can," concludes Chairez with an ironic smile. "It's great to be on this side, which is more organized, but we know that the magic is down there."
