Cochemea Gastelum


In Episode of 18 Plus One Eric speaks with saxophonist and composer Cochemea Gastelum, whose 2019 album “All My Relations” is one of Kraz’s most played records of the year. Cochemea made his mark as a member of The Dap-Kings, the potent funk and soul band behind the late great vocalist Sharon Jones. He’s also played with artists from Amy Winehouse to Run The Jewels, always experimenting with effects and other sounds you might not expect from a sax player.

Cochemea brings that same experimental ethos to his solo material, drawing inspiration from his native roots and incorporating Navajo melodies, a Sanskrit prayer, and Mexican huapango rhythms with jazz and funk arrangements to produce a record that is truly one of a kind.
