5.0 out of 5 stars Life After Ketama 11 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
I already wondering if anyone will stumble into this review. A pity, really, when you think of the music they may never find out about which is available in this album. Carmona, best known for his leading role in Ketama, did well to have Gustavo Santaolalla produce his solo album; together they've woven haunting, ragged and sensual sound, where each song gets what it needs to rock or move.

Great songs abound. Ay De Ti is just a perfect song--flamenco, pop & hip/hop all in the right places--and Puerto Moruno rocks, part Spanish and part Argentine. Also Se Amarra El Pelo, Vengo Venenoso and Para Que Tu No Llores are standouts. What Carmona has accomplished here is to push the boundaries of New Flamenco to his own idea of powerful global music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nouveau Flamenco 8 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Like the other reviewer of this album I don't quite know how you will stumble across these reviews.
If like me its through the excellent music of Ketama you will find this album an interesting companion to Antonio Carmona earlier works with the fantastic Ketama.
The sound and feel of this album is more mellow with string arrangements to Carmonas earlier works but maybe because its a solo work he had more influence on the overall sound and feel. I don't no why this guy has not had more International success and maybe in Central and South America he is more famous, but as for England nobody has heard of him.
His voice is as good as it always was and this is an excellent set of tunes that grows on you , I am a particular fan of the opening track Se Amarra El Pelo, and Ay De Ti with a kind of Spanish rap in the middle section but overall the whole album is good. If you are a fan of this style of music go and buy it! If by chance you never have heard of his earlier works with Ketama throw in Toma Ketama for good measure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flamenco Fusion from a popular Spanish singer 25 April 2008
By Film Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My sister purchased this CD for me on a trip to Spain, because it wasn't available in the U.S. at that time. After its release, it became the top-selling CD in Spain for a while. It's great to see that Amazon has it in stock now.

Antonio Carmona is a very talented gitano (gypsy) singer/musician from Granada, Spain. He rose to popularity in the flamenco fusion group known as Ketama, which was composed of family members. According to flamenco aficionados, he is one of the best percussionists in that genre, known for his prowess on the cajón. He is in great demand as both a singer and percussionist, and he plays on many other artists' albums.

On this, his first solo CD, he plays the guitar and sings a variety of beautiful songs. On some songs, he sings duets with other popular Spanish performers. The absolute best for me is "Para Que Tu No Llores" with the international pop star Alejandro Sanz (I am also a fan of Sanz). However, there are other notable duets, such as "Ay de Ti" with the popular Spanish hip-hop/rap artist Mala Rodriguez.

I like every song on the album, and I would recommend it highly to anyone who likes flamenco fusion or flamenco pop. At 13.99, it's a deal; my sister had to pay about 22 U.S. dollars for it in Spain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love!! 12 Nov 2013
By shop girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD, it's so happy and upbeat but just makes you feel so relaxed at the same time. I like every single song on this CD and have been listening to it all week, that's saying something!!It's a great blend of flamenco and more modern music. The title track "Vengo Venenoso" is among my favorites. This is one of those CDs you can listen to as background music for a party, in the car, to wind down, while cooking, I'll never get tired of it ;)
