With a pinch out of the wild and a few flamenco schemes,“Cuando me tiras de la lengua…”(When you make me talk…)is Pellizco’s first release.
In keeping with its unique understanding of flamenco, and renewed but faithful to a special way of mixing it with other styles of music, Pellizco sounds like the rhythmic beat of a Harley, smells of wood and metal, feels like the texture of the old vinyl records… tastes of coffee and olive-oil soaked toast.
Pellizco’s songs, with their down-to-earth and intimate lyrics, jolly but full of meaning, work like a vitamin that suddenly fills your soul with furious power and pain.
Pellizco blends classic flamenco songs like soleares, bulerías, guajiras and tanguillos with intimate sensations and a vibrant rock and roll background that transports us to the most progressive and forward-looking musical landscapes.
Pellizco is the offspring of the creative musicians and composers of the renowned Sevilla band Mártires del Compás and María José “LUNA”, a voice that fills the stage with the deep and soothing ancient sweetness of flamenco.
LUNA has worked frequently with Albert Pla, Ojos de Brujo and Carle Benavent, among others. In the Théatre National de Toulouse she has played for seven years a leading role in Federico García Lorca’s Llanto por Ignacio Sánchez Mejías and Romancero Gitano.
Her union with Mártires del Compás represents no doubt a firm resolution to enjoy the most feminine and asserting aspects of flamenco, thereby stimulating the creative evolution of the band.
Their long-standing experience has taken them to first-line stages like the Montreux Jazz Festival, Midem in Cannes, LAMC in New York, Festival of Arezzo, Festival Caliente de la Habana, Kennedy Center in Washington, El Lunario in Mexico… and to countries like the USA, Mexico, Argentina, Cuba, Russia, Egypt, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and a long list of the most prestigious concert halls and festivals of many Spanish cities.

Pellizco will continue to release its new work through the main national and international distribution channels.
In this their first recording, Pellizco seduces us with twelve songs exploding with creativity and originality.
Letting loose their imagination they capture the attention of people of different musical backgrounds, easily conquering both the orthodox and the eccentric. Their lyrics, brimming with cheek, freedom and respect, carry messages that will make more than one think.
They are still pioneers, their sound is powerful, overwhelming, they never miss a beat, they sound like PELLIZCO.
