From Colombian hills, Carlos Elliot Jr. is a Bluesman inspired by the Mississippi Hill Country Blues but with a unique sound that blends the beat of rural dance music of north Mississippi, his backgrounds along with some African & Latin American music essence. All condensed as the beat machine that incites you to party and dancing ritual.
He has experienced and lived the Blues root right where it was born, playing with local legends. Through these, Carlos managed to permeate his already rich and diverse Colombian musical and cultural roots with the power and the deep spiritual feeling of Blues music.
After his third and successful record “RAISE THE FIRE AMERICA” as ‘Power Blues Duo’ that showed a strong connection between the rhythm and melody, inspired by the north Mississippi hill Country Blues Duos, the Drums and Fife and some kind of fusions of Afro and Latino American rhythms, now he brings the new album "Del Otún & el Mississippi" featuring legend RL Boyce.
Carlos lives in Colombia, plays the guitar and fife as the pioneer of the Hill Country Blues in South America. He keeps touring and participating in the North and South America scene.
Blues from Colombian Hills.
