I live with a neurological disorder called cerebral palsy (cp). There are several types of cp and I have a rare type called ataxic. It affects my balance (I still use the railing when I descend stairs), my speech is not perfectly clear (I don’t mind repeating what I say), and I sometimes have a tremor when I use my hands. CP is not progressive and it doesn’t hurt for me to move – it just is a bit slower.

From adventurous originals like Tamacun to an all-acoustic guitar version of Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven, truly each and every song is musically impressive and interesting. The band has said that though your ears might hear flamenco, that's not what it is. More specifically, they blend "Latin harmonies and rhythms but the structure is rock," according to their bio on Jambase (a great band profile website).
