With gut wrenching, poetic lyrics in the vein of Leonard Cohen and a vocalist with the rugged sincerity of Johnny Cash, Rapazzi is the brainchild of a gifted Brazilian composer/producer, an award-winning American lyricist, and seasoned vocalists living in Mexico. The result of their collaboration is retro Mexi-Cali infused beat generation exhortations on the meaning of life in the early 21st Century. Texas vocalists and songwriters Bobby and Leslie Sahlen first met at Pantera’s recording studio in 1988. Over the years they have collaborated and shared stages with a Who’s Who of music icons. After relocating to Mexico, the couple formed MexMo San Carlos in partnership with 60’s superstar Chris Montez. In 2011 the duo met award winning American lyricist Johnny Starburst and thus began an extraordinarily prolific songwriting odyssey. The talented Brazilian songwriter and producer Nery Bauer joined the project and the result is the transcontinental uniqueness that is Rapazzi. “Not sure how I 'd classify this other than very unique. Slightly twisted old west vibe. This is TOTALLY AWESOME! The Johnny Cash style vocal is incredible. LOVE THIS!” - Chip Salerno “Sick! Quirky and great!” - Bangemboi Productions “You’re never too old to rock and roll, so keep it up”

- Ann W . Richards
