OK so this is not my first time listening to Flamenco or Flamenco influenced music but i still should like this. Firstly i prefer the traditional forms of flamenco to alot of this modern-fusion stuff turning up these days, secondly i also hate hip-hop. Thus on the surface i should not like Ojos De Brujo because they are a fusion band with a base of rumba flamenco, and worse than that they often fuse with hip-hop amongst other forms of music. Nonetheless it works! The music has a powerful energy with interesting twists and turn, the vocals are great the words have meaning (rare for hip-hop songs on MTV)and it never gets boring. This is better than Bari and i'm sure this band could go far, if like me you doubted that you would find them listenable when you heard a description of them.....give them the benefit of any doubt and give it a try. INFECTIOUS!
