“Carlos Charm and Paco are a full-force duo who can do it all. They can turn up a function with 808-heavy tracks; they can vibe with the best of them on easy-going production; but they shine the brightest when they bar out over soulful instrumentals with hard-hitting percussion.”

The Monastery is a hip hop collective founded in Pleasant Grove, AL, in 2010, centered around the up-and-coming duo Paco and Carlos Charm.
“We chose the name “The Monastery” because the monastery is a facility where monks live, meditate, and reach enlightenment. We felt that music, a universal language, was the channel we could strongest help those around us come together and attain a higher understanding of the world, of others, and of ourselves.
