SYDNEY band Kallidad will continue its love affair with Western Australia this weekend when it performs in Margaret River.
The band's three amigos, known to fans as Jacinko, Senor Bang Bang and Pollo Negro, describe their music as 'Mexican mariachi metal'.
Their influences include Met allica, Tool, Led Zeppelin and Slipknot, among many. They also share a special bond with Tijuana Cartel, who took them on some of their very first tours to Byron Bay and Bellingen.
"We couldn't have done without them," Senor Bang Bang said.
"They're a brilliant band who we really look up to and there are plenty of similarities [between us], especially the Spanish guitar."
Kallidad has toured Europe and Australia and performed at festivals such as Rainbow Serpent and Nannup Festival. The trio has been asked to play at Dwellingup's Nanga Festival later this year, which will mark their third trip to WA in 12 months.
See them live at Settlers Tavern, Margaret River on Saturday and Sunday.
