AURAS is the latest incarnation of Alejandro Laborde's music project. The project started in 2004 as an AlterNative Rock Band from Southern California under the name of Nox which then became Noxdiei. Since many of the songs by Noxdiei were sung in Spanish it was also labeled under the Rock en Español genre. Regardeless of this their music has always been meant to be shared with everyone ...everywhere.
After spending a lot of time rehearsing and playing a few gigs here and there Noxdiei had enough original material to record an album. On the recording of the album colaborated Sergio Millan on bass Steven Olivera on drums and percussion Richie Orantes on percussion and Marco Galicia on percussion and indigenous / Andean instruments. Alejandro Laborde recorded the lead and background vocals acoustic and electric guitars keyboards and seashell. He also wrote all the songs and produced the album which was completed in mid 2011. Towards the end of the production of the album Noxdiei evolved into Auras.
The self-titled album Auras includes elements from Rock Reggae Ska Cumbia Funk Pop and blends acoustic with electric sounds to create an explosive set of 11 songs each with its own identity. 9 songs have lyrics in Spanish and 2 songs have lyrics in English.
Alejandro Laborde has great admiration for “The Light” and the deeper meaning that it represents this is reflected on the lyrics of his songs and the universality of his music.
