We've had the blessing not just to walk where they walked, or dance where they danced, but doing it with them by their side and experiencing this deep emotion right where all this story began. It's living itself Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll heritage.

We feel we're a part in the chain, keeping it real and alive. We ‘ve learned how to feel it and we are ready to take this joy wherever we go, ready to take the party with us all over the world!

The Otún is the river, the hills and region in Colombia where I grew up, it was named after african and native american communities. This record tells the story of the Otún and the North Mississippi and we realised we ain't that different!


When the latin rhytms meet the Mississippi Blues sound, the results cannot be less than incandescent. Carlos Elliot JR from Colombia has recently released his new album together with The Cornlickers, the Big Jack Johnson's band, called Del Otun & El Mississippi. The album cover is exquisitely 70's style and it is a record in which the Colombian artist showcases once again his great skills and ability on guitar and his unique mash-up of boogie, soul, Mississippi Hill Country Blues and Roots.

Del Otun & El Mississippi is a real fun record to listen to, which enhances not just the qualities of the Colombian artist as a guitarist/singer/songwriter but also as a deep connoisseur of the blues traditions.

The enthralling boogie sound coming from I Love You With All My Heart, the opener Down In Como or The Story Of Otun & North MS resemble the best moments of Muddy Waters or Bo Diddley's songbook.

The track Katrina The Mule carries echoes of Booker T. & The MGs, with Elliot's trademark guitar sound beautifully backed by The Cornlickers rhytm section. Even when Elliot steps into soulful ballads like Got This Feeling, with that unmistakable Motown feeling, the quality of the album remains very high. Elliott's voice, on ballads, becomes even more warm and tender, a pure joy to listen to.

One of the many highlights of the album is also coming from When The Beat Hits You, where Elliot and The Cornlickers turn vibrantly into pure Mississippi Hill Country Blues style, through the twists and turns that make this take on the traditional blues genre pretty much unique.

The surprises though, are not over at all. The instrumental My Mule Bray's In Othar's Hood is almost a military march, played solely by drum and Elliott's mouth pipe, a moment of little sweet self-indulgence on an excellently crafted album.

Another brilliant album from one of Colombia's finest musicians and a band that sounds at the top of their game. One cannot ask for more on a blues album. --- Giovanni "Gio" Pilato,

Carlos Elliot Jr. has been playing music around in his country since he’s been 13 years old but it was just when he started to play in Delta Juke Joints and Backyard House Blues parties in Mississippi when he got this beat style, hypnotically rhythmic.

After a couple of times travelling in quest for Blues roots, it led him all the way up to North Mississippi where he fell under the spell of local Blues playing with Blues legends with whom he learnt and lived in their own culture, permeating their musical expression and primitive Hill Country Blues tradition.

“The Cornlickers”, are the house band at Red's Lounge - the most historic and famous Juke Joint Blues club in the world - located in Clarksdale, Mississippi and the last band of the legendary bluesman Big Jack Johnson (One of the Jelly Roll Kings back in the 60’s). They have been playing with other local Blues legends too like Cadillac John Nolden, Big T Williams & Terry Harmonica Bean.

This record was made at “Right coast Recording Studio” State-of-the-art vintage recording. Producer was Bobby Gentilo (From The Cornlickers), with the presence of Dave Natale (Rolling Stones sound engineer for 25 years now) and Dave Wilkerson (YES sound engineer for 23 years now). It was made in the old vintage way, on magnetic tape and analog process, there wasn’t even a single digital process made except for the final analog to digital conversion. It has this Mystic Juke Joint Blues Party Sound, It ain’t commercial at all, so probably you will like it!
