Colombian artist inspired by the beat of rural dance music of north Mississippi, the Hill Country Blues along with a self-discovered sense of spirituality in Blues music, creates a unique sound that blends his backgrounds in African & Latin American music with Rock n’ Roll, incites you to party and the dancing ritual. Considered the Hill Country Blues Pioneer in Latin America.
After his third and successful record “RAISE THE FIRE AMERICA” that showed a strong connection between the rhythm and melody with some fusions of Afro and Latino American rhythms, now he brings the new album "Del Otún & el Mississippi" featuring the legendary master R.L. Boyce.
He has experienced and lived the Blues & Rock’nRoll right where it was born, playing for years with local legends in Juke Joints and Backyard Blues Parties in North Mississippi. Carlos Elliot Jr. is a 2-piece band, they live in Pereira (Colombia) and keep touring in the North and South America scene. Pure dancing Blues & Rock'nRoll!
