Check Out Carlos Arzate's Performance at the Bowen Stone House in the Tucson Mountains

Posted By on Wed, Jan 27, 2016 at 1:23 PM

It's that time of year when bands are looking to get some national attention by submitting their short performances to NPR's Tiny Desk contest. This year Carlos Arzate & the Kind Souls opted to give their submission some Sonoran soul by hiking a mile into the Tucson Mountains to get to a partially-finished structure known as the Bowen Stone House.

The historic site, with its two fireplaces, beautiful masonry and lack of roof or windows, lends an air of mystery and timelessness to Arzate's song "No More." The surrounding mountains and prevalent saguaro provide a picturesque view of the desert. The video was produced by Sandra Westdahl.

Last year, Arzate and his band submitted their song "On & On & On," along with several other submissions from Tucson bands. If your band is entering this year, send your videos along to
