ZEHEL: We are an experimental music and video band from Mexico city!

Text by Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi

Since my interview with Remi Alvarez I got interested in the Mexican music scene. Meanwhile I met another Mexican musician, Omar Tamez, who was playing at The University of The Streets a couple of months ago. It seems there is a Jazz/improve/elctronica scene developing which I like to cover for a while.

A week ago I got an email from Jimmy Cohen, a member of the Mexican group ZEHEL, with following text:
We are an experimental music and video band from Mexico city. Here you can get an idea of what we do, from acoustic to electronic, I hope you are interested.

I said yes and told him to introduce his band himself.  So here we go:


Was created in 2009 by Jimmy Cohen (Electric Guitar, Alto Sax, Synth) and Jose Djamus (Piano, keyboards, Sitar, Flute) in the heart of Mexico City with the idea of Experimenting with the sound  that our minds can create trough the instruments merging psychedelic light show and experimental video.
ZEHEL concept is to improvise , every Concert is unique and different  , we go through the very inside of our conscience and mind always creating new Sounds.

everything is created in the moment  , what you will hear is never going  to happened again so please relax and enjoy the atmosphere because ZEHEL is going to get you in the deepest corners of your sub-conscience .

In the last years the band has played in many venues , Festivals , Museums and Expositions. Also ZEHEL has musicalized silent films and short films. There are many videos and albums ready for you to have the experience.
