Product Description

BBC Review

Techari Live, the new album from Barcelonians Ojos de Brujo, sets expectations high. It's a live concert disc of their hit album Techari recorded in their home town, on the final night of their 2006 tour, three days before Christmas. On paper it has epic written all over it, and it doesn't disappoint.

This is technically the sixth album from the eight piece collective (their name translates into English as 'wizard's eyes') - although like two before it's a reworked version of a previous album.

So what do you get for your money? Lots of flamenco guitar, some bongo drums and a sprinkling of piano. Marina's vocals are often brilliantly, mind-blowingly fast; like on track nine 'Todo Tiende'. Their hip-hop flamenco style boasts a very varied range - lyrics in Spanish, Greek and English, Indian vibes and a Romany album title (meaning 'free'). You can see why a previous reviewer labelled their sound 'an eclectically brilliant gipsy stew'.

The album benefits from being a concert recording - the set list was clearly designed to thrill a crowd. It opens with a bang ('Respira' or 'It Breathes') and closes with the epic 'Nana', though the highlight for many will be track three - an outstanding cover of Bob Marley's 'Get Up, Stand Up'. OdB have reworked it so that the original reggae essence benefits from a spicy helping of flamenco salsa.

Mind you, for such a flamenco-heavy album, there is a good degree of variety in the songs. Some, like 'Piedras Contra Tanques', zing with energy and frenzied pace. Conversely

'No Somos Maquinas' ('We Are Not Machines') has such a gorgeously lazy start it could almost be lounge music - albeit that of a very funky cocktail bar. And 'Todo Tiende' is the ultimate in sultry chill-out.

It's easy to see why the original album earned the band a Latin Grammy nomination. And with a DVD of the live performance included, there's not a lot to dislike. OdB's vibes are so far from Ricky Martin that even staunch Latin sceptics might find their feet unconsciously tapping out a flamenco on the floor. Porqué no escuchar? --Sophie Bruce

5.0 out of 5 stars Live perfection 9 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With this purchase you will receive Techari played live in Barcelona in its entirety on cd and also dvd. The track order is slightly different to that of the studio album but that really doesn't matter. Any fan of this band and Techari will be blown away by how good Ojos de Brujo are when performing this material live. There are about 20 people on stage all playing a huge array of instruments with many guest appearances from people like father freddi. I'm not sure of the band members names but all I can say is that they all give 100% and all produce a carnival atmosphere on stage. It really is breathtaking to watch. I'm not usually a fan of live cds but on this occasion you get all your favourite Techari tracks played with passion and raw talent this band has in spades. Unmissable for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 9 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I usually steer clear of live recording like the previous reviewer. Having seen some of the songs performed on YouTube I was blown away by it. They really put every bit of effort into entertaining their audiences, with a huge band, flamenco dancers, guest appearances and intriguing projections. I guess their music would be categorised as progressive Flamenco/Latin, even jazz and a hint of hip hop. Each performance is executed with sheer precision and real energy making it a performance that you can really get absorbed into!

The reason why I (reluctantly) give this 4/5 is because of their cover of Bob Marley's 'Get Up, Stand Up'. It's not that they don't do it well but in my opinion they don't do it right! Being a fan of Bob Marley you might expect that though; so don't let this criticism put you off a real gift of a performance.. Just be warned if you love the original version!

Stand out track: Todo Tiende.

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably brilliant 22 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
First of all I have not seen this DVD but I did catch Ojos live a couple of years ago on the same tour and they blew me away. The previous two reviewers seem to have the excitement of the live performance nailed so the DVD is obviously a good representation of the busy live show I was treated to. This gig, along with Gotan Project a couple of years earlier at the same venue made me seriously question why I had spent so much money going to see bands that can barely play three-chords without fluffing it!
