Matisse: Mr. Machicao, you are one of Bolivia’s greatest music artist. I would like to ask you some questions about your extreme love, passion and feelings regarding music. I would also like to ask you some few questions about your journey and career as a music artist.

Mr. Machicao: Sure.

Matisse: How would you define music?

Mr. Machicao: Music, out of all the arts, is the most elevated. I find the sound of music as something completely abstract. It is complex and beautiful.

Matisse: How did you discover your love and passion for music?

Mr. Machicao: Since I was very little, approximately since I was 9 years old, I started studying the guitar. I also come from a family of musicians, my father and grandfather were both musicians. Since I was little I heard all types of music at home, I heard mostly Flamenco and Tango, as well as folklore Bolivian music.

Matisse: What instruments do you play?

Mr. Machicao: The guitar and piano, as well as the base and the drums. When I started working at school, I started studying the trumpet and trombone as well as violonchelo.

Matisse: What feeling do these instruments inspire in you?

Mr. Machicao: Each instrument has its own touch. For example, when I hear the violonchelo, calmness is inspired inside me.

Matisse: You played in a band called Chola Chala, would you mind telling me about it?

Mr. Machicao: I am no longer with this band, but we used to play fusion as well as a mix of Spanish flamenco and and Bolivian folklore. I became the artist I am today due to this band and I am extremely thankful for everything I have learned playing with them as well as the experiences I gained.

Matisse: What other highlights did you have in your career?

Mr. Machicao: I opened concerts in Bolivia, such as a concert about a Mexican band named Allison which played punk.

Matisse: Thank you for your time and amazing story.
