The Other Black, featuring Cosmic Slim (formerly of Air Dubai and Petals of Spain) is
an experience unlike anything you have yet to observe in the Denver music market.

Newly formed in the late Fall of 2012, this dynamic group started with a mere 9
members and has launched to upwards of 24. That's right, just about 30 musicians
collaborating to bring you a unique sound and leave you with a smile in your soul.
These are musicians that have already contributed successfully to the scene; from Birds
Of A Feather, Bonnie & The Beard, Petals of Spain, The People's Abstract and more.

Needless to say, upon taking stage - this assortment of artistry commands it's presence.
Their act has been compared to reading an old school Parliament comic book. In a
nutshell, this crowd's get-up is wild, garish, & funky with fresh attire that makes you
believe they MUST have a costume designer amongst them somewhere. In short, they
are like watching a cartoon come to life.

The Other Black clearly simply loves what they do. Their soul-funk- do-wop mix with a
modern squeeze endears them. People are on their feet when The Other Black hits the
stage. If you haven't seen them yet, you will.

All songs are written and arranged by Cosmic Slim, with the exception of the few covers
they perform honoring soul legends Sly & The Family Stone and Ray Charles.

iZCALLi makes the kind of music you leave home to: melancholy folk phrases lashed to driving beats that pin the pedal to the floor — that Molotov of nostalgia and exhilaration, the immigrant song. It’s a feeling iZCALLi — named for the Mexican birthplace of member-siblings Miguel (lead guitar/vocals) and Brenda Avina (bass) and the Nahuatl word for rebirth — knows well. Born on both sides of the border (drummer Luiggy Ramirez hails from Colorado) and formed in the Denver over ten years ago, iZCALLi has, over the course of three LPs and a thousand shows, swigged its evolving sound from both wells of tradition, from Latin-tinged echoes to punching metal to filthy blues, in English and in Español. The result is a loyal flock of fans of every color, from every background, rich or poor. The result is RETI=Rock En Tu Idioma, a community for making rock in Spanish, the music of the melting pot, which is deeply American and knows no frontiers. This is iZCALLi’s appeal: the kind of music that makes you leave home and return, exhilarating live shows that celebrate tradition and kin, that unite what you find with what you left behind, and open the heart, so you know you are home.

The finest balance of progressive, and yet, still headnodic. A haunting fusion of jazz hip hop/soul with classical undertones, to say the least, buckle up.
