Down in Como (Featuring R.L.Boyce).

This video summarizes the CD release tour of our 4th production “Del Otún & el Mississippi.” A tour that took us to several beautiful places all over the country and that we called #TouKatrinaCOL1, August and September 2015. For some of the shows we were accompanied by blues legend R.L. Boyce from North Mississippi who came to South America for the first time to be a part of this celebration and who is featured on the new album.

The song “Down In Como” describes a party time in Como, Mississippi, hometown of the great master R.L. Boyce. We have had the blessing of participating in many traditional "Backyard Blues Parties" in Como with some of the living legends of the Hill Country Blues.

R.L. Boyce played drums for his uncle Othar Turner and has appeared in some of his recordings, played for many years for Jessie Mae Hemphill, was first-cousin to RL Burnside and his family is related to Muddy Waters. One of his mentors was his neighbor for many years Mississippi Fred McDowell. This video is dedicated to this generous living legend.

The song “Down In Como” is the first song on the new album “Del Otún & el Mississippi” by Carlos Elliot Jr. & The Cornlickers feat. R.L.Boyce. Produced by Bobby Gentilo; Recorded at Right Coast Recording in the United States. Video Directed by Alejandro Ardila, VideoColombia.com; Video recorded in Colombia, South America during the #TourKatrinaCOL1 VIDEO LINK
