NOSOTROS LOS OLVIDADOS
INDEPENDENT | BAND
(MONTERREY, NUEVO LEON, MEXICO)
Originally from Nuevo León, Mexico, Nosotros Los Olvidados starts in 2013 by Gary Villarreal on drums along with Diego Castañeda as lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist. During that same year, Jesús Valadez was attached as the lead guitarist and Eduardo Gómez on bass. However, Jesus decides to retire a year later. At the end of 2013, they already had original compositions, which were announced at the Café Iguana, the first venue to open the doors despite being a band that was just beginning on the local scene. During the end of 2013 and in 2014, they begin to gain recognition by recording a demo of 7 songs. In this process, Juan Carlos Olvera joins the band as lead guitarist, complementing the band's musical style with his experience in folkloric roots, Mexican trova and popular music. A short time later Edgar Ortegón, a multi-instrumentalist of different influences, joined the ranks, allowing the band to set their sound bridge and consolidate the current group. In 2015, the group began to emphasize the regal scene definitively by participating in local festivals such as the Machaca Fest, and playing in venues such as Café Iguana and the classroom of the Civil College Theater (U.A.N.L.) among many others. That same year they participate in the Yamaha Band Competition that takes them to represent Nuevo León nationally and they obtain the first place, a prize that takes them to expand their musical and personal horizons to the country of Japan in 2016. The EP (March 2016) from Nosotros Los Olvidados offers songs that speak of real and diverse topics, songs that deal with everyday feelings, songs that perhaps sound like life and the dreams of someone from a neighborhood in the most hidden city of Mexico . But the music they offer goes beyond popular culture, by mixing different references to the country, anecdotes from the members. They try to reach their audience by leaving a message to each of their listeners. Not only do they seek to tell stories with slow and fast melodies, it also seeks to create a similarity between them and the audience: To remain in the spectator as a memory. We the Forgotten is an answer, it is to remember that person who is very strange, it is to remember the good times, they are allegories that speak of our life. Their music is like feelings that are there, waiting to be told.
