the güapos locos project
the güapos locos are a long-time collaboration between the Mexican pianist Gustavo Mezo and the German drummer david Soin Tappeser. having met during their studies in Paris, they recorded their first ep - four contemporary jazz covers of 1970s rock anthems - alongside the Australian bassist Michael Mear in early 2013.
despite the geographical distance, the duo continues to reunite and perform regularly. over the past several year, the güapos locos have played at 59 rivoli (paris w/ Taro Sakakibara), Maison de la mexique (paris w/ sélène saint-aimé), Lawaetz foundation (Hamburg w/greg Gottlieb) as well as several smaller venues in and around London.
