ahleuchatistas: Bio

AH - LOO - CHA - TEES - TAS !!!

Ahleuchatistas is guitarist Shane Perlowin and 

drummer Ryan Oslance on a musical odyssey 

of pure imagination, limitless in influences, combining tight-knit 

composition with improvisation, and delivering 

powerful live shows.

The project was founded in 2002 and 

has evolved organically in its near-decade long 

history as the muse leads through the creative 

sonic continuum... 


About the name, two words were once married to

give an identity and conceptual continuity to a 

musical enterprise without limits.  

Ah-leu-cha & Zapatistas.  

The first is the title of  a Charlie Parker song, 

the second that of a revolutionary movement 

which began in Chiapas, Mexico in 1994.  

Musical revolution and social revolution combined 

into a single coinage.  

Movement and the constant outstripping of itself 

are what unifies all the sounds under this single name.
