I sit down with Chris Bowers-Castillo, Will Parkhill, and Michael Devincenzi of the band Kiltro. Kiltro was originally conceived in Valparaiso, Chile and is on the rise here in Colorado. They weave beautiful narratives within these large musical soundscapes that can been described as Chilean Folk Rock. In this interview we talk all things music. The pursuit of it as a career. How we connect to it. The intimate process that goes into creating it. This band is one of my favorites. They are awesome guys and, as you'll hear, clearly have their hearts in the right place. Check their music out online and go experience their shows. Here is our conversation!
