Biography

Madre Matilda started in 1996, when Carlos Salas (guitar) met Pierina Less (vocals), as he and Giorgio Bertolli (drums) decided to form a band. They decide the name of the band as a tribute to Pink Floyd’s track “Matilda’s Mother”. After Juan José Sandoval (bass) completed the band, they spend 1996 rehearsing and demoing several tracks for their first album.

They released their first album, named “Madre Matilda”, in 1998 under the record label Discos Hispanos, after spending 1997 recording it in “El Techo” studios. During those days, the band had the following members: Pierina Less (vocals), Carlos Salas (guitar), Coco Berenz (guitar), Juan José Sandoval (bass), Giorgio Bertolli (drums) y Pamela Contreras (backing vocals).

“Viento Stereo”, the first single was in heavy rotation on the local radio stations. The band took some time off after this, mostly because Giorgio Bertolli left the band. He was replaced by Jorge Olazo.

In early 1999, the band started working on their second album. They recorded a 10-track demo album to present the project to Sony Music. Madre Matilda’s new tracks caught their attention because of their new electro rock style. Jorge ‘Pelo’ Madueño (La Liga del Sueño) was in charge of the production and the new sound of the band, but before the recordings started, Coco Berenz and Juan Jóse Sandoval left the band, being replaced by Chisco Ramos and Vitucho Malásquez.
