Carlos Elliot

Carlos Elliot and the Gente Espiritu is a band whose music is aimed at the whole society, promoting a look at ancestral traditions and sharing a message of union in community that transcends race, sex, age, origin, culture or belief, inviting the audience to seek their own truth and to use music to activate internal medicine. After a long musical journey, they arrive with the creation of an intense new rhythm that propels the body to ritual dance, mixing different musical genres, in what they call "Dancing Blues, Roots & Rock'nRoll".

Carlos Elliot, band's leader, composer & singer is a native of Andes hills in Colombia, South America. He, like the band, has lived and experienced the Blues and Rock'nRoll right where it was created, in its cradle. Mississippi. They’ve been learning from the hands of legendary masters, regularly performing with the realest of the real for the last 10 years in the Delta and north Mississippi. The band is credited as pioneers of Hill Country Blues in Latin America and recognized as internationally acclaimed independent artists, completing extensive tours in 15 different countries in the last 2 years, playing in important festivals & stages in Europe, Asia, South, and North America. The name of the band does not particularly describe its members, but all the People of spirit who believe and seek its path.

This name was revealed in the form of a vision in rituals typical of the original peoples of the Americas, in communities that have allowed them to reconnect with their indigenous ancestral roots throughout the Americas and throughout the planet. They operate from Otún-Quimbaya, Colombia and Mississippi, USA, constantly touring, activating territories around the world, and supporting causes that are aligned with their vision. The band announces its fourth record production that will be released in summer 2019 by record label Right Coast Recording in the US.
