Mikel Azpiroz, musician from San Sebastian ( Spain) plays mainly piano and organ and has added melodica to his sound palette. He is the leader of ELKANO BROWNING CREAM, synonymous with contagious rhythms that evoke memories of the great Hammond organ trios. The band will shortly release a new album based on a Hohner melodica, acoustic guitar and percussion.
Mikel says: "As the keyboardist and composer of the ELKANO BROWNING CREAM band I discovered a whole new sonic world when we introduced the melodica to our set. I first started using it as the organ substitute for short acoustic promotional radio shows but immediatly it showed that this instrument has its own entity and personality. This led us to expand our creativity and work with the melodica's tonal possibilities, reaching musical fields that we would have not found otherwise."
