Chapa, an LA-based musical artist, represents the fusion of intelligent and individualistic talents into a collective that explores the less-worn paths of music, discovering new sounds and aural ideas for the public's consumption. Chapa's music has been called a "beautifully blended mixture of classical instrumentation, modern grooves, and timeless stories" most succinctly summed up as "orchestral folk." "Music is something that makes you feel jovial, warm, sad, hopeful, vibrant, understood and loved all at once," Chapa says, describing his passion for creating evocative, fresh sounds that defy convention. In regard to the group's experimentation, he offers this thought: "Play the music that you love to play." It's a simple secret, he believes, to creating music that sets itself apart and offers something exciting for a jaded listening community. And to keep things fun, he shares this advice: "Treat life with a smile." 
 “The music of Chapa is its own best definition. If you are blessed with the talent of listening, this combination of half spoken poetry, orchestral themes, thematic development and masterful percussion will clear away the dust in some unoccupied corridor you have probably neglected. That half sung dying fall in the voice, and woodwind song, the bliss of gliss, and the smile of a cello will take you to the garden where poetry grows.”
- Billy Sheppard, Billy’s Bunker

 "If "original" is what you seek, look no further than Chapa, who effortlessly blends high art with folk-inspired spiritual music. This is pure poetry. The classical instrumentation coupled with bold experimentation make Chapa and his band of merrymen cutting-edge artists. This music challenges the mind and the senses."
- Howard Lawrence, Reverbnation Artist
