About Sizu Yantra
A master of disguise and a lover of alter egos, Sizu Yantra (aka Ruben Albarran) is the primary voice (and manic energy) behind Cafe Tacuba, one of Mexico's most talented and original rock bands. The singer chose the moniker Sizu Yantra for his 2006 solo effort, Bienvenido Al Sueno, but don't imagine these are nonsense words. "Sizu" refers to a cactus-like plant that's sacred to an incarnation of the Buddha, while a "Yantra" refers to a symbolic representation of divinity which an adherent meditates on to discover the abilities of one's soul. Fittingly, Albarran's debut, Bienvenido Al Sueno, names his playful techno explorations after key Buddhist concepts and mantras.
