TrueGrooves announces the release of The Carmona Project. A seven-piece collaborative ensemble focused on playing live, global funk and tropical rhythms that was recorded in the summer of 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. The Carmona Project was an experiment in sound with KidGusto and friends combining the diverse influences of each member of the group which led to a unique impression and message that is as potent now as it was then. The house on Carmona Ave. was a place of gathering, a spot in mid-city LA where east meets west and all points of the great metropolis converge. Perhaps you know of a similar setting, where people get together to represent our extended family from across the globe. This family is one that you instantly know through the smiles, laughter and joy felt with one another while listening to or creating music that moves you. Within each of us there is music we carry from all of our experiences, influences and heritage. The Carmona Project brought us together under the banner of global funk and groove and celebrated the time honored tradition of cultural exchange.
