cachopou is a duo boy band playing sound collages, composed with a random mix of bedroom electronics, noise, off-key pseudo-jazz and non-erudite classical studio improvisations, resulting in some kind of povera experimental world music

met juanma lodo briefly in september 2o14 in asturias, and decided to get together as duo boy band cachopou. exactly one year after, and as the very second encounter, we entered drax studios in madrid and recorded our very first music album entitled "creating standards", launched in october 2o15, which instruments were recorded separately to later be composed, aiming to navigate the seas between experimental, off-key improvisation and non-erudite pseudo classical & world music

our first world tour visited barcelona, são paulo, san francisco & hasselt, in each city a different band was ensemble to play cachopou’s songs

few months later, in june 2o16 we released a limited edition ep cassette featuring new versions of the songs recomposed / remixed by musicians and artists entitled "creating remixes"

has taken us 4 years of recordings, 3 different studios, many talented guests, and several months of composing and mastering to deliver in may 2o2o cachopou’s second album "tropicalismo neo"
