Sizzling Spanish Bombs,
This review is from: Bari (Audio CD)
Flamenco has always been a bit of a puzzle for me: highly attractive when sprinkled here and there, usually rebuting when in its normal form. I know there is flamenco I would want to know of but never got the proper introduction.
Ojos de Brujo (trasnlates as Wizzard's eyes) made my lazy quest simple ... and beautiful. Mixing their main Flamenco ingredient with fantastic bass playing, scratch, hip hop, punk rock energy, electornics, topped up with the totally impeccable voice of their female singer and you have a totally winning album.
Make no mistake this is NOT watered-down flamenco, nor is it straight-up Flamenco. For a musically aware generation of music lovers this is the perfect fusion - in a sin frontera world with just the right amount of local roots melded with global beats.
