INTERVIEW TO POLO AMDUSCIA
1.When and why did you become a musician
I started learning music since I was little at the school, but honestly, I was not the best student, I failed the subject many times, but always felt passion for the music and that passion took me to perform as a professional musician in 1999 with Amduscia.
2.What are your characteristics? What makes you Special?
I can say that Mexico is present all the time in my music; you can heard and feel a special Latin taste, culturally, or even though socially, that it is what I try to express in my art, what I am experienced every day to make it personal and unique.
3. Who and what inspired you?
My main inspiration is my brother Edgar Acevedo, the creator of Amduscia, who is no longer in this earthly dimension, and thanks to him who encourage me to generate and create music for Amduscia. He was also my greatest teacher, and I think I am not a bad learner, because, the people still joining our music. Thanks to all of you!.
4. Who are your most important role models and why?
My parents definitely. I am who I am in this life thanks to them, I don’t have any other role models or idols to follow in my life.
5.How do you imagine listening to your music? Where do you like to listen??
I believe that my music could transcend and break any barriers, I used to dream that my music was being heard by someone from an other planet out there, in the cosmos, who knows? haha. I like to listen my music on the road, into the forest especially at night when we are more perceptive, that moment, when all apparently makes sense.
6.What role do social media play in your career? How important is YouTube or Instagram for you?
To be honest social media is not our priority, personally, I find it very pretentious. The band prefer the direct and immediate connection with our fans; for us is very important to reach our fans just after every live show, that is the best way to talk in person with our fans. I understand in this nowadays, social media it is an important tool to expand music, but at the same time music has turned into a disposable product, so where is that connection with the artist?. We are very proud to say, that we know most of our fans. Also since 1999 when Amduscia become famous, social media wasn’t there, so we prefer to keep our communication in that way.
7. Do you actually do anything besides the Music?
I am a member of a Volkswagen Club in my country, and it is something that I really enjoy it, just to drive all over the roads with my friends it is a great feeling, the feeling of freedom inspire me to reflect about life.
8. What has been the best performance you’ve seen so far?
I don’t have any favourite show, for me, every show is unique with a special magic, but, I enjoy to play in festivals, especially in Europe, because there is more public.
9. Who should play you when your life is filmed?
It is a good question since right now Amduscia is celebrating 20 years of existence, and we are honouring the band with a new album called „Exist“, it is a triple album which contains an unpublished record plus 2 albums of “The Best of Amduscia”, this would be the perfect soundtrack to illustrate my life.
10.Last question: What do you want for the next 10 years, what do you need for it?
I would like to keep producing and performing; we will do it for our fans and all the people who support Amduscia since the beginning. Probably in the future, I will try other styles, I mean some relaxed rhythms.
