Andino Suns grew out of the desire for Andrés Davalos to recreate the music he’d grown up listening to at home. His parents were exiled to Canada when a fascist dictatorship took over their homeland, Chile, in the early 70s. Though they found peace in Canada, Andrés’ parents missed terribly the way of life from which they had been violently uprooted. They continued to surround themselves with their Chilean culture, passing it down to their children through stories, traditional Andean music and folk dances, and media. It’s no surprise then that a worldview of political activism, hope, and love, underpins the music of Andino Suns.
Sam Tudor grew up at a forest research station, developing an affinity for both plants and outdated technology in the process. In 2014 he released the album The Modern New Year. One music blog described it as “really beating the mould” which is either a compliment or a statement about the effect of music on fungus.
