‘El Ombligo de la Luna’ reaches us from deep in the past but it also exists entirely outside of time, as Luis Perez ‘Ixoneztli’’s offering to the world - the soul of Mexico channeled through the hands of a master musician.

Following a decade playing in Mexico City’s psychedelic rock scene, his early solo work showcases an astonishing blend of pre-Hispanic & ethnographic wind & percussions with electric guitars, effects & synths. In 1981, the Mexican government became very interested Perez work & sponsored the production of what became the first recording of the fusion of native mexican instruments with electronics. The impact of this recording & subsequent performances among media, ethnomusicologists & audiences alike established Luis Perez ‘Ixoneztli’ as a precursor to a new musical genre followed by a generation of young Mexican musicians - Ethno-Rock, Ethno-Jazz, Ethno-Experimental & the like.
