5.0 out of 5 stars Life After Ketama, 11 Feb. 2008

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

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!
