Martín Better Longo is an Ecuadorian who immigrated with his family to the United States at the tender age of 8 years old. As a young adult, he moved from Boulder to New Orleans to immerse himself in the city’s diverse and explosive music scene. His current project, Fruta Brutal, emerged from his exposure to Latin American music through his extensive travels in South America and the alternative rock and jazz he grew up with. The vision behind Fruta Brutal culminates in the celebration of mixed race, mestizaje, by synthesizing Latin America rhythms with popular U.S genres. Fruta Brutal has performed at the iconic Tipitina’s venue of New Orleans, as well as immigration and social justice related events, such as the Latinx Festival of Colorado, Suave Fest in Denver, and the Immigrants are Beautiful Tour, opening for the nationally acclaimed band; Making Movies.

Fruta Brutal’s Boulder debut took place at the iconic Fox Theatre. The band’s new single, Melodrama, mastered by Chilean Carlos González Nanajari, is the first of a series of songs that are being recorded at Wara Record, owned by Oscar Guillén. These new singles showcase an eclectic collection of styles through original compositions in English, Spanish, and Spanglish.


The current band members include drummer Michel Stahli, percussionist Leo González Muñoz, bassist Matthew Cantor.
