Cochemea - Vol. II: Baca Sewa (LP)
to wrap new flesh around the bones of history, this album is a bold, semi-autobiographical work that leads us deeper into the annals of family history, mythology and the cultural imaginary.
“Baca Sewa” is Cochemeaʼs original family name prior to Spanish colonization and the fracturing or erasure of ancient knowledge and ways. The melody for the title track was composed by Anthony Gastelum and features vocals and drumming by the Baca Sewa Singers- family members with whom he has reunited. The album runs thick with sonic tributes and remembrances. “Chitoʼs Song” is
a contemplative, ethereal tribute to a beloved uncle. “Curandera” conjures the memory of the irrepressible healing power of medicine women. “Black Pearl” recalls his great grandfather, heir to a legacy of indigenous peoples enslaved as pearl divers in the Sea of Cortez.
Leading a nine-piece ensemble composed of New Yorkʼs top percussionists and members of Daptoneʼs rhythm section, Cochemea recombined ancient elements of drums, winds, and voice, creating his own world of emotional textures and rhythmic possibilities.
His musical and spiritual synthesis is made possible through his deep reverence of the horn and of the music and traditions preceding him. Vol. II: Baca Sewa, is an offering, born from the fruits of this journeyman's storied quest for knowledge and musical oneness.
