Starts as Tlipoca project ( drums, prehispanic instruments ) and Tecuhtli ( vocals, guitar prehispanic instruments ) creating compositions which would be, his first album under the name of "OMETILIZTLI “ recorded entirely by Tlipoca and Tecuhtli. This work features 10 tracks that sees the light in 2009.
