Listen Up: Chócala's Ortiz Siblings Get To Know Each Other on 'Local Vibes'

Episode 32

by and


Liza and Claudio Ortiz of Chócala, the band that's taken over Snug Harbor for a March residency, have rarely been apart throughout their lives. They've went from being home-schooled and starring in comedic home video performances together to playing shows together with Patabamba and now Chócala.

So you'd think they know each other pretty well, right? We put that to the test right out of the gate in Episode 32, and talk to the sibling musicians about how their mother inspired them creatively and why Chócala is an experimental Latin jam band for people who can't stand jam bands.
