Chotokoeu Short Info

2012 was a key year in Chotokoeu’s life. The band, with a lot of work behind them, gave a musical and organizational boost to their project and made them create original and powerful live shows, including even theatre and juggling, always trying to surprise the audience with something new.

CHOTOKOEU was born as a percussion band with the members Brais and Rubén in mid-2007. Gradually, more musicians were added into the project, thus beginning its journey through bars and festivals of Galicia.

It was in 2009 when they won the Galiza Crea contest, an event that reflects the path the band was following. The next years they would take their music into wide open bars and festivals of their region like Pardiñas, Millo Verde, Reperkusión, etc. Little by little, and without realizing it, a new musical family started taking form into a different and unique project.

In February, they had their first opportunity to present the new show with a well known Spanish band, La Pegatina, in the most famous venue of Galicia, Sala Capitol in Santiago de Compostela. With great response from the crowd, they started to think about taking their music outside Galicia and went on their first European tour.

They finished this year with more than 60 concerts in 6 countries: Germany, Holland, Belgium, Italy, England and Spain, playing in very important festivals like “Fusion Festival” in Germany or “Irie Vibes” in Belgium.

In 2013 they recorded their first album “Chotokoeu”. The band was very excited to present this CD at festivals in Galicia (A Rebusca, Antrospinos, Rebumbio, Castelo Rock, etc), venues and festivals in Europe (Kokopelli and Fiesta Mundial among others), eventually ending the year with the “15 días 15 bares” (15 days 15 bars)tour, a marathon through Galicia playing 15 concerts in a row, proving that Chotokoeu is full of energy and have the will to continue working in a self-managed and original project where the goal is to spread energy, party and joy for everyone.
