Depedro - Tu Mediodia SXSW 2011 Showcasing Artist
Posted by TwitC
Nubes De Papel (Paper Clouds), the second album from Spanish guitarist-singer-songwriter Jairo Zavala, is, at its heart, a series of reveries from the road. States Zavala, who has adopted the moniker of Depedro for his solo performances, "I had been touring for two years straight. I was in different cities, different hotels, different countries, yet every night I would have really, really good dreams." Dreams were a constant in the peripatetic life of this solo artist and always-in-demand sideman for such acts as Calexico and Andrew Bird, and from his dreams came these quietly intense, emotive, yearning songs. His music, balancing the traditional and the experimental, is rooted in sounds from Spain, Mexico and Latin America, yet it suggests a place all its own. The seductive landscape of Depedro is easy to enter but not on any map.
