The global pandemic has put a stop to Gurkestra's regular monthly gig at Bar 355, but we managed to go into the studio just before lockdown. Please enjoy a couple tracks from our forthcoming album. La Muerte, a dark, evocative journey. Then click through to listen to El Diablito, an energetic cumbia. Both pieces feature David Flores on drums, Marlon Aldana on percussion, Luke Kirley on tuba, and Isaac Narell on tenor sax and fender rhodes. Compositions and bari sax by Charlie Gurke.
