In the heat of a summer afternoon in the desert, Chicharra [CHEE-CHAR-A] emerges. This is a band from Albuquerque, N.M. featuring: Monica Demarco [voice/bass] Marisa Demarco [voice/bass], Mauro Woody [voice/bass], and Henry Hutchinson [drums]. In English, "chicharra" is "cicada," and the vocal harmonies of the band reflect that.
Chicharra performed a live set from KUNM's Studio A for Music to Soothe the Savage Beast on March 11, 2014. Engineered by Simon Welter, hosted by Derek Caterwaul.
