Kanko was formed in 2006 as a collaboration between songwriter Brian Ramos (Fantasma) and producer Dusty Oliveira (Paula de Anda, Kumbia Kings) The project was conceived as an experiment that would blur the lines between the musical traditions of Latin America to which Ramos was no stranger and the hard edged tones of early hard rock, punk and hip hop. Hours of experimentation in the studio resulted in a handful of gritty neo-cumbia recordings that would be the foundation for the performing act that would follow. Guitarist Ryan Rooney (tfo, catatonics) came to write for the band as well and in 2007 with the addition of Nick Trevino (Echo Bass Sound System) and John Spiece (hairy apes), the sound of the group coalesced to bring the house down with brutally soulful Latin rock and roll and hybrid pop music.
