All You Need is Mosh

Jonas Gonzalez and Alejandro Rosso are two young guys from Monterrey, Mexico. They were big fans of computerized games when they met. And they both liked music. But that’s where the similarities end. Jonas at the time came from a background of trash metal. Alejandro’s tastes leaned towards the avante-garde, appreciating jazz and classical music. Their opposite musical worlds collided and still do in their music. Together, they are the duo forming the heart and soul of Plastilina Mosh. Jonas speaks with Maria Hinojosa about the group’s fourth CD, “All You Need is Mosh.”
