which is why we see them so often here, but if anything this offering is even more Cuban in feel than 'A lo cubano'.
?Que Pasa? is typical:
--Que es lo que pasa
--En mi barrio
--Eh, psss tu asere
--Mi gente me escucha
[in the Royal Albert Hall, I guess]
There's less scratching than on the previous album and there are fewer immediately catchy grooves - oh, and once or twice the rapping sounds like Snoop Dogg - but this makes for a more rounded record with some fine musicianship.
My copy got knicked last week, but it's some sort of recommendation that I'm going to fork out for it again.

For those of us in search of the ultimate fusion music, such as brazilian drum'n'bass, french downtempo or African Nujazz (Hmmm), Orishas has provided us once again with their unique hybrid of hip hop beats combined with a distinct Latino undertone, and a hint of french thrown in too. Released two years after their stunningly successful debut album 'A lo cubano', the bands latest album 'emigrante' portrays a more mature sound from the group, with music to suit several moods. Whilst the album contains several up-beat classics, with meaty hip hop basslines and fast melodics, such as 'El ray de pachacha' and 'ninos', the group have also proven they can produce a less aggressive sound (eg. Mujer and Ausencia)that is ideal as background music. As a result, this album is one of those rare gems that will suit your mood depending on what volume you want! One point to note at this stage is this: If you're after deep and meaningful lyrics you better be fluent in spanish, mexican, cuban and well versed in french too, otherwise you won't have a clue what they're on about.....However, that being said, and this may seem a trifle shallow, it has got a good beat! If you like the Buena Vista social club, and can appreciate the likes of their fabled rivals, Ozomatli, then this is the album for you.

I loved 'A Lo Cubano', Orishas' first album. It made me just want to jump around my room gesturing like a gangster or salsa like a woman possesed, so I bought this album, having heard none of the tracks, too. At first, I have to confess, I wasn't sure; it feels slower, less frenzied. There is less scratching and more real musicianship, Roldan sings a lot more, there even seems to be more of his soulful voice than there is rapping. It's true, apart from the track 'Ninos', I don't really want to jump around or salsa quite as much. Actually, I want to listen to it, I want to really feel it. In short, I love it. Orishas have created an album which doesn't try to replicate 'A Lo Cubano', but builds on it, is more mature, perhaps reflecting their own processes of growing up. I can't wait to see where they will go with their next album.
