The Anthropologists of Nosy Mangabe came to be when Andres Ramos and Charles Gouker, two Miami-based musicians that had been playing together for a few years, overcame their aversion to the scent of human body odor, and went to Churchill’s Bar to listen to an open mic session. There they heard the siren’s call of Virginia de Las Pozas and Kaitlin Pelkey, who were performing on stage.
To the two men’s fortune, they were not in a boat, and consequently, the girl’s siren’s call did not have the typically-expected detrimental effect.
Later that evening, Andres walked up to the girls and invited them to get together and make music sometime in the future (after all, making music in the past would have entailed the development of technology that Andres did not have the money to fund).
A few weeks later, they met up, and realized that together they sounded better than any of them sounded alone. From that moment on, they began performing under the name of the Anthropologists of Nosy Mangabe, and the rest, hopefully, one day will be history.
