ABOUT QIENSAVE-¿Qiensave? is the brainchild of multi-disciplinary artist  Carlos “Qien” Leyva Cortez as he seeks to create a diverse collaborative musical projects.  Qiensave began by fusing the sounds of several cross-genre musicians from throughout California from the city of Los Angeles to the central valley of Salinas and everywhere in between. The name of the band itself is a testament to these humble beginnings. While hinting at the uncertainty of gathering so many artists to collaborate, the name ¿Qiensave? also evokes the exciting prospect of reality’s infinite possibilities

 ¿Qiensave? Is Carlos “Qien” Leyva Cortez and Alejandro Gomez. This duo along With the help of talented musicians like Mario Cortez, Ricardo Cortez, William Cortez, Matty Segura and many others make up the addictive body moving sound of ¿Qiensave?

¿Qiensaves? first Ep/Mixtape “Bella ciudad,” circulated and captured the attention of many listeners, including  director Eric Stoltz, who used the title track “Bella ciudad” as background music on the NBC show, Quarterlife.

Immediately  following the release of “Bella Ciudad” ¿Qiensave? began recording their first full-length album, “Cómo verte?”  under Mooremapp records and produced by Qien, Larry Hosford, Charlie McGovern and Mony Lujan. “Como verte?”  is  a conceptual piece that captures the journey and struggle of people moving through and from the city in search of prosperity.

Currently ¿Qiensave? Is putting their final touches on their new album “Mujer” set to be released in early 2018. This album features a unique blend of cumbia and rock fused together with other danceable rhythms . “Mujer” is inspired by women and the experiences shared with them while making this album. It’s a danceable blend of rhythms told through tragic yet playful lyrics.
