Biography

San Diego, United States

Castanets is an experimental one-man band from San Diego composed of Raymond Raposa and any number of session musicians brought on for his albums and performances. The music has been described as , , , and a slew of other labels. Fundamentally, the music of Castanets is built on the clash between traditional music styles (, ) and modern intuition (, ).

For several years, Raymond spent his time traveling the USA by bus and distributing CD-R copies of his music. Castanets has since released two albums, 2004’s Cathedral and 2005’s First Light’s Freeze, both on Sufjan Stevens’ Asthmatic Kitty label.
