Mexico City, Dakar and Sao Paulo will meet Minnesota head-on when the original funk rock of Hijos del Maíz, plays Saturday February 15th at the new ArTrujillo Gallery, 315 East Lake Street in Minneapolis. With members from Mexico, Senegal and Brazil plus years of experienced talent, this band promises to blow the snow and heat up the scene.

Hijos del Maíz translates to “Children of the Corn” – a reference to the Aztec’s most sacred plant, and mother of us all. Like maíz, these diverse musicians believe, music is food for the soul. They aim to give our souls a feast.

David Rodriguez, the band’s guitarist and leader, has fast fingers and solos like a warrior-priest. He learned his craft copying Mexico’s 80’s and 90’s rock’n’roll – groups like El Tri and the Jaguares, who both played the Twin Cities last year. But he jumps into a different mode with Hijos del May, and now spices his licks with a funky world beat.

The unique rhythm section adds curry and flurry with Elias from Mexico on drums, Mamadu from Senegal on bass guitar and Eliezer from Brazil on congas. Together they have over 50 years of performing experience and endless variety in their mix. And finally, Cristina from Mexico contributes “sabor” with her sweet and sensual vocals.

The band has played numerous clubs and alternative venues over the past year, but this is their debut at the new ArTrujillo Gallery. For fans and new listeners, Hijos del Maíz will open your ears.

The public is invited to this all age’s event. For more information, please call 612-821-9076 or on the internet see www.ArTrujillo.com.
