Coco Rosie featuring Tez and The Rafasthan Roots Biography
After touring for the better part of 2007 on our last album, we were ready to create new songs. We had just finished a tour in South America, and we spontaneously set out to find the nearest analog studio and someone to twist the knobs. Through a mutual friend, we met Nicolas Kalwill, a Buenos Aires-based studio engineer who has worked on 15 Argentinean gold and platinum albums. He suggested a world-renowned, vintage studio in Buenos Aires called Panda, where we spent half of the dozen sessions that it took to make this record. Nico Kalwill is the engineer all artists dream of—very talented and always willing to patiently work with the total creative chaos in which our songwriting thrives. We found such an intense chemistry together that we made a tradition of it. After each major tour, we would all meet up and record in whichever studio we found closest to our last show. That is how the story went until alas, we whittled it all down, like gnomes carving soap castles in prison, to our favorite musical adventures from this period.
