Band to Join.

ABOUT

You can write me directly to luisdiestra since i rarely check this profile

I have played all my life in one band (DIESTRA) up until close to 2 yrs ago when the my brother/lead singer died in a car accident months after our 2nd album was released. With DIESTRA I put out 2 full albums and 2 EPs in the Latin Alternative music scene, our albums still are distributed world wide (iTunes, emusic, etc) I have also colaborated in other projects mainly in electronica and live performances with house DJs

currently i'm looking to get things together and continue as Diestra , create something entirely new or have the opportunity to join a committed group of musicians that share the same objective and focus. I have many ideas laid down mainly in the vein of Drop A tune metal/ hard rock meets electornic ambience
