Biography

Quarantine At El Ganzo is like a solo album with two main vocalists contributing an even amount of songs. Erlend Øye, known from Whitest Boy Alive, Kings of Convenience, and La Comitiva. Sebastian Maschat is mostly known as the drummer of Whitest Boy Alive, but on this record his role is the multi-instrumentalist, handling piano, synth, flute, trombone, flute, and all kinds of percussion instruments.
