In March we went to Oaxaca de Juarez in the region of Oaxaca, México, to record some amazing musicians for #ProjectELECTRICO: The Making of a Global Galactic Pop record around the world.
Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Engineer Diego López made this incredible video about our heart-driven journey in Oaxaca (where Diego is originally from). In the video Diego shares some cool gear for recording remotely, plus he captures the nuances of Oaxaca sound and vibrant Oaxaca culture. Please enjoy the beauty that is Oaxaca!
The video is in Spanish so remember to select the subtitles for your language.
