El-Haru Kuroi / Bio

El Haru Kuroi, an East Los Angeles trio rooted in Mexican, South American and African melodies and rhythms has initiated a fierce style and sound.

“Combining the snarling urgency of post-punk with the sensuality of bossa-nova, they’ve come upon something very different and exciting to listen to” (M. Cotto, KCRW).

El-Haru Kuroi performs throughout the Los Angeles area in several community/cultural festivals, art galleries, film festivals, and numerous venues. They have performed at First Fridays Natural History Museum, The Levitt Pavillion MacArther Park, Eagle Rock Music Festival and The Mayan Theater, opening up for Gogol Bordello. They have also ventured on a South West tour toward New Orleans spreading their sound in other parts of America.
Their music is also featured in a few independent films, including the documentary, "Homeboy," one of the first of its kind, to explore homosexuality amongst the Mexican American cholo community, in the 80's and 90's.

El Haru Kuroi has two full length albums and one acoustic EP. The release of their latest album "CantaGallo," is the most current sound of El-Haru Kuroi as they continue to evolve as people and musicians, bringing a sound of their own: "East Los Angeles Nueva Tropicalia." Currently, El-Haru Kuroi is working on their next album, with singles and videos to be released periodically during the process.
