El Pony Pisador are a folk-fusion band from Barcelona.
The band who were enthusiastically awaiting their UK tour this March as well as two festival dates in Australia in April were gutted when everything had to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the situation in Spain being one of the worst in the world, the band members also have had to be separate and isolated in their own homes.
However, the band did not let that stop them from working creatively. While the band have followed in the footsteps of many bands doing live stream concerts, I don’t think many other bands are offering the sheer amount of creativeness in other ways. The band asked their fans to draw pictures of “animals doing human stuff” – then the band individually wrote parts for micro-songs about these human-like animals and shared the finished product on YouTube, check it out here:
Here we have Gustau the fox who plays the double bass! As you can see the band members can’t even stay in the same room together due to being in isolation as the COVID-19 pandemic is isolating millions worldwide. For many life is grinding to a halt, but for El Pony Pisador, it is just bringing out more of their creativity!
El Pony Pisador recently released their album Matricular Una Galera featuring tracks such as Lime Scurvy, Maggy May and Santianna. You can stream the full album on Spotify now:
