  • ¿Qiensave?



    ¿Qiensave?, began as the brainchild of multi-disciplinary artist Carlos “Qien” Leyva Cortez as he sought to create a collaborative musical project. He began by fusing the sounds of several cross-genre musicians from throughout Los Angeles County. The name of the band itself is a testament to these humble beginnings, while also hinting at the uncertainty of gathering so many artists to collaborate. The name, ¿Qiensave?, also evokes the exciting prospect of reality’s infinite possibilities. 
    Eventually, thanks to mobile studios, ¿Qiensave? was able to record and produce their first mix tape, headed by Qien and Jason Rosenburg from Ancestry of Sound. The result was a patchwork of various musicians’ organic and synthetic beats, ranging from lyric-heavy coffee shop melodies to psychedelic soundscapes. The mix tape and title-track, “Bella ciudad,” circulated and captured the attention of many listeners, including director Eric Stoltz, who used it as background music on the NBC show, Quarterlife.

    Immediately following the release of their mix tape, ¿Qiensave? began preparation for their first full-length collaborative album. This new project included Fishbone front man Angelo Moore, who, after two sessions, decided to sign ¿Qiensave? to his label, MooreMapp Records, and begin recording.
    Production was put on hold, however, and after two years of setbacks, ¿Qiensave? was reduced to one remaining member, Qien. He migrated to Salinas, where, along with Alejandro Gomez, and Various musicians he began to rebuilt ¿Qiensave?.  With the help of various guest producers and musicians, ¿Qiensave? was finally able to finish recording their first full-length album. Cómo verte? is a conceptual piece that captures the journey and struggle of People Moving through and from The City, was released April 2015.
    Thanks to the group’s eclectic blend of cross-genre sounds, ¿Qiensave? has been blessed with many opportunities to share the stage with several well-respected musical acts including La Santa Cecilia, the B-Side Players, bad fish, thee commons, la quilombera, Bachaco, Wasted Noise, Los Tiliches, Angelo Moore of Fishbone, and more.
