G&L Feature Artist: Kinky

Using G&L to drive the Latin vibe...


Since the late 90's, Kinky has taken Central and South America by storm. They have managed to mesh Latin influenced music with straight up rock, creating a sound unlike anything you've ever heard.

In recent years, Kinky has successfully made the jump to the U.S. market by playing festivals like Cochella and Guitar Center Session. Although the majority of Kinky's songs are in Spanish, they have started to include songs in English as well.

To date, Kinky has released 5 albums. Several of their songs have been featured in videogames, including FIFA 06, SSX 3, and LittleBigPlanet. They have also been prominantly featured in televison shows including Gossip Girl and Weeds. Additionally, Kinky's song We Are the Galaxy is currently the official anthem for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

All three guitar players in Kinky are G&L enthusiasts. Guitarist vocalist Gil Cerezo plays an ASAT Classic BluesBoy Semi-Hollow, guitarist Carlos Chairez plays an ASAT Special, and bassist Cesar Pliego plays an assortment of L-2500's.
