Liber Teran

LIBER TERAN: EL GITANO WESTERN Independent Recordings(2007) Líber Terán, former lead singer and guitarist for "Los de Abajo" presents a new project as a soloist. In this new phase he explores different musical styles near classic rock'n roll, with influences from Gene Vincent, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, The Beatles, as well as popular and northern music as Los Tigres Del Norte, Los Cadetes de Linares and José Alfredo Jiménez. His songs blend the innermost feelings with the description of the harsh urban reality of Mexico City, the sobriety of the melancholic, the nostalgic romance and the violent situation of the city, bringing out the gypsy in all of us. Líber Terán began this new phase after 14 years of touring in Europe, United States, Canada, Asia and Oceania. He also recorded two albums for David Byrne's label Luaka Bop, called "Los de Abajo"(1998) and "Cybertropic Chilango Power "(2002), as well as two independent albums entitled "No Borrarán" (2005) and "Latin Ska Force" (2002), a live album "Complete and live (LA/2004)" and "LDA vs The Lunatics" (2006), produced by Temple of Sound for Peter Gabriel's label, Real World Records. His first solo album "El Gitano Western" was edited by Independent Recordings and it is available throughout Europe and the rest of the world. It includes 13 fresh songs and discovers the great variety of sounds reached by Terán. LIBER TERAN: TAMBPORA SOUND SYSTEM Santo Canuto Records/EMI (2009) “Tambora Sound System” is the name of Liber Teran´s second album as his solo project. On this new album we can find a fusion of tambora sinaloense, a music style from the north part of Mexico, with Balkan music. This new production has a scale of rhythms going from polka to foxtrot, vals, rocksteady, rumba… always with a rock spirit. His second album includes nine tracks; two of which are Mexican popular music classics: “El sube y baja”, which was famous in the 50’s thanks to “El Piporro” and Luis Pérez Meza, and “El perro negro”, of the authorship of José Alfredo Jiménez. The seven remaining songs are stories that go from the country to the city, from melancholy to sarcasm, adorned with the vibes of the Mediterranean and East Europe, as well as with elements of electronic music. This album concludes with two bonus tracks, a couple of collaborations from the most recognized DJ´s from the Mexican scene: Toy Selectah (ex-Control Machete y Sonidero Nacional), who remixes “El Jardín Ideal”, and Roberto Mendoza (Panóptica), who remakes “El Gitano Western”. With Tambora Sound System, Líber Terán, manages to put Mexico in the Balkans and vice versa, with all the power of music that breaks boundaries. www.myspace.com/liberteran www.liberteran.com www.twitter.com/liberteran www.sonicbids.com/liberteran2
