Rock // For Fans of: Cafe Tacvba, Molotov, Luybell, MUSE, The Dead Weather, Jack White, Dua Lipa and Mon Laferte
iZCALLi makes the kind of music you leave home to: melancholy folk phrases lashed to driving beats that pin the pedal to the floor — that Molotov of nostalgia and exhilaration, the immigrant song. It’s a feeling iZCALLi — named for the Mexican birthplace of member-siblings Miguel (lead guitar/vocals) and Brenda Avina (bass) and the Nahuatl word for rebirth — knows well. Born on the other side of the border and formed in the Denver over a decade ago, iZCALLi has, over the course of five LPs and a thousand shows, swigged its evolving sound from both wells of tradition, from Latin-tinged echoes to punching rock to filthy blues, in English and in Español. The result is a diverse loyal flock of fans of diverse backgrounds and tastes. The result is iZCALLi, the music of the melting pot, which is deeply American and knows no frontiers, the kind of music that makes you leave home and return. Exhilarating live shows that celebrate tradition and kin, that unite what you find with what you left behind, and open the heart, so you know you are home.
Our band is founded on the pillars of family (Brenda and Miguel are brother and sister). The cultural diversity and inclusivity of our band is something we are very proud of, being able to weave cultures both learned and inherited has been a true pleasure.
