Watch: Gustavo Galindo interview, presented by Austin Vida & Blastro2

The Pachanga Latino Music Festival 2012 was swarming with talent, both new and familiar. This year I had the pleasure of talking to Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Gustavo Galindo before his set. Galindo’s shared the bill with the likes of Zoé, Kinky, Ximena Sariñana, Natalia Lafourcade and more. He’s also played South by Southwest before and expressed delight at being back in Austin for Pachanga Fest.

Galindo’s personal history lies in both Mexico City and L.A. He grew up on everything from José José to Cat Stevens, and believes the fusion of both cultures is what most influenced his sound. He’s been compared to John Mayer (if you’re looking for a reference) and the music from his album Entre La Ciudad Y El Mar appeals to both the believers and the brokenhearted. Feel free to watch the interview below.
