Tamoanchan is a humble dedication to the people, the beauty, the landscapes and the the darkness of México. This music was written in and inspired by El Búho´s two years living in Mexico City and time spent travelling across the country. It´s sound encompasses cumbia rhythms, deep basses and wavering flutes alongside field recordings of crickets, forests and festivals.

Cumbia de Totl or the cumbia of the owl narrates the journey out of Mexico City, rising above the mountains and into Mexico´s beautiful rolling landscapes. La Hora Más Oscura was written in the darkest hours of the night before dawn breaks at the Bahidora festival and is a dedication to the post-dancefloor. Noche Tepotzotlán, the sister track to Mañana Tepotzlan, was written on a return to the mythical town just outside of Mexico City but this time underneath the stars rather than as the dawn broke. Heroíca refers to Heroíca Veracruz the capital of one of the most troubled and violent states in Mexico but also one of the most historic and beautiful.
