Caliche

Caliche were a Latin American band who  I played guitar and percussion for. Caliche were led by Carlos Villa-lobos Munoz Based in Kings Heath. I went on to work free-lance PA, studio work and teaching FE Sound Production to HND level and still worked free-lance on studio design and some solo blues gigs but now retired. Hope this may be of interest/help to your project. Regards
