Biography

Arturo Meza is a mexican poet, musician and writer . Born in Tocumbo, Michoacan, Mexico; December 15th 1956.

He's a well known composer, musician, multi instrumentalist, singer, poet and independent writer. Prolific artist, creator of a wide work in art and inventor of musical instruments (such as mezáfono, teclaedro, oglio and yeloguerlizet). He is very well known in the local mexican rock scene; as well as in the folk, social related music scene.

The base of his musical work is folk music (as in folk-rock): songs with a severe instrumentation of voice, guitar and eventually harmonica. He has also embraced several other styles, such as symphonic music, progressive rock, rock, blues and mexican folk ("norteño" style and "son" style, mainly).

Meza's work in music have been divided by the artist in "Ersal Music" (in which the music was composed for mystic, ceremonial purposes; some of those compositions where strongly influenced by Josefa Rosalía Luque Álvarez, an argentinian noun, writer and mystic from the XIX century) and "Songs", which seems to be his musical compositions with no further intentions.

His lyrics have become a central part of his works; filled with metaphoric images, are defended by his fans as a literary work by itself. Meza's work include aswell several published books of narrative and poetry.
