American duo Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada formed BLACK PUMAS in 2017, but despite their short time together, they’ve scored 7 Grammy nominations (including a nomination for Best Album). Their brilliant debut album, Black Pumas, propelled them into the musical limelight in 2019, becoming the most acclaimed debut album in years.
At the end of October, the band released their eagerly awaited second album, Chronicles of a Diamond, confirming that they are not a one-hit wonder and that they can deliver another flawlessly crafted album. The “diamond” in the title is fitting because it truly is a musical gem.
Singer Eric Burton started out in church choirs and his voice sounds like a gentle hug for the soul. Producer and guitarist Adrian Quesada is a Grammy winner, has been in bands such as Grupo Fantasma and Brownout, and has backed artists such as Prince and Daniel Johnston.
You can enjoy their great mix of psychedelic soul, R&B, jazz-funk and symphonic pop at Pohada Festival in July 2024.
