Blockbuster show at Artword! A Love Electric is a critically acclaimed rock trio born out of Mexico City’s jazz scene. Todd Clouser (guitar/vocals) of Minneapolis, USA, Hernan Hecht (drums), a longtime Mexico resident from Argentina, and Aaron Cruz (bass), a Mexico City native, form a band that over 4 years, 4 records, and nearly 500 concerts, has consistently accomplished the uncommon, making music on their own terms and touring the world.

“A savage guitarist, a merciless drummer, an enormous bassist” says Mexico City rock festival giant Vive Latino. From cities throughout Mexico, the United States, and on tours through Germany, the Czech Republic, Spain, Morocco, to Panama, and through Argentina to Patagonia, A Love Electric has won fans and praise from critics for its energetic and altruistic approach to creating and performing. “Blistering”, says the Prague Post of the A Love Electric experience, NPR says “fascinating”, Time Out Barcelona “illuminating”, and MX City’s major newspaper La Jornada “a hit, one of the most progressive and important groups of recent years.”
A Love Electric are tireless supporters of arts education, performing and teaching in at-risk communities across the Americas.
