That’s sprinkled with rockstars from all over the place, from different genres. We’ve been doing this for a long time, so all the people that you meet along the way, on tour or at a festival. All those people that turn into your idols are now your peers and your friends, so we had a lot of our friends be a part of this album.

Musica Roots: How is it performing for the LA audience?

Itagui: LA is great, man. It’s a great energy, every time we are in LA; we have family in LA.

David: But LA is hard. It’s hard to play a show because there is a level of you have to earn it. There’s a vibe in the city and people here got a lot pride, so we feel that and we keep looking forward to coming back.
