[Music Gorilla] What does Ghandaia mean and how did you choose the name?

Greg Jones The word Ghandaia comes from the Portuguese word gandaia, which means a huge celebration. We added the h to give it a more unique look and sound. It also means opportunist in Mexico, a personal joke within the band.

[Music Gorilla] What are your greatest accomplishments to date?

Greg Jones Not many independent bands can say they have an amazing first record, a song on a Volkswagen commercial or having the opportunity to play at the San Jose jazz Festival.

[Music Gorilla] Five years from now, Ghandaia will be touring the world! Do you fellas hang out together out of the studio? What do you guys enjoy?

Greg Jones Yep. Ed likes to make margaritas for all of us. Alex is quite handy in the kitchen, Freggy always comes through with dessert. Greg eats. Pablo drinks and sleeps.

[Music Gorilla] Santana or Clapton, who would you rather jam with?

Greg Jones Both.

[Music Gorilla] Bring back the dead, who is it?

Greg Jones Bob Marley, Fela.

[Music Gorilla] Which member writes the music?

Greg Jones We all do.

[Music Gorilla] We have enjoyed the Ghandaia experience live and left impressed. What separates you guys?

Greg Jones I think we have an original sound - makes you think, shake your ass at the same time. The fact that we've been together so long is very beneficial - we are tighter on stage, knowing what each member can and will do. We try to avoid 'standard', pop music, always trying to give it our own flavor.

[Music Gorilla] Your favorite Ghandaia song? Does it involve a true life experience?

Greg Jones All of our music is either socially driven or political, with the odd exceptions. All of our life experiences, what we've seen and learned are molded into our songs.

Greg Jones Ghandaia's immediate future gigs and goals: 
We'll be traveling to Mexico for a few gigs in March, and come right back to Austin to play at SXSW.
We plan to finish our second album soon afterwards, and would love to secure support from bigger labels/distributors.
