COCHEMEA GASTELUM is a musical journeyman who draws on ancestral memories and family histories to wrap new flesh around the bones of history. In his 2019 Daptone debut All My Relations he combined musical inspirations from his Yaqui/Yoeme indigenous heritage with musical chops honed performing with the world’s premier soul/funk and jazz artists to present an exquisite meditation on the interconnection of all things.
His 2021 follow-up, Vol II: Baca Sewa is a continuation of Cochemea’s explorations, part of a musical process of cultural reclamation and healing. The album reflects the deepening of his connections with family and keepers of memory in his bloodlines as he focuses on one particular line of his family tree. It is a bold, semi-autobiographical work that leads us deeper into the archives of family history, mythology and the cultural imaginary.

Cochemea has toured and recorded with Sharon Jones, Kevin Morby, Jon Batiste, Archie Shepp, Amy Winehouse, Antibalas, Budos Band, The Roots, David Byrne, Beck, Rick Rubin, and Quincy Jones among many
others.
Pitchfork called All My Relations: “equal parts spiritual journey and irrepressible funk,”
