iTunes Review

An adventurous exploration of Colombia’s rich musical heritage that features a near-unclassifiable mélange of musical styles, Ondatropica started life as the brainchild of Colombian bandleader Mario Galeano and British DJ/producer Will Holland. It soon mutated into a wooly and unhinged collaborative effort that eventually attracted the talents of more than 40 musicians. The roster of participants includes illustrious names from the golden age of Colombian popular music, like Michi Sarmiento, Jauncho Vargas, and Anibal Velasquez, as well as a host of younger players. Though the collection is dominated by cumbia's loping two-step rhythms, a dizzying array of styles are represented here, from fandango, gaita, and champeta to salsa, boogaloo, ska, and even klezmer. The result is surprisingly cohesive, thanks largely to bandleader Mario Galeano’s ability to navigate multiple musical traditions while maintaining a consistent overall sound. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to listeners familiar with Galeano’s genre-bending work as the leader of Frente Cumbiero, whose 2011 release Frente Cumbiero Meets Mad Professor was an engagingly successful fusion of cumbia and dub reggae.

Customer Reviews

Not much to say...

Only that it's absolutely terrific! It's an amazing record. The analog sound is warm and wonderful and the musicianship immaculate. Anita Tijoux displays her genious and badassery in "Suena" and the a version of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" will make you rethink the power behind Iomi's riffs. I truly love this record. I hope you do as well. (Those of you that may be thinking of this project as a Buenavista Social Club wannabe... you are sadly, sadly mistaken. Give it a listen).

A Masterpiece

Absolutely stunning record by a collection of artists from Columbia and abroad. The rhythms are exquisite on every track and the percussion is out of this world. A great mix of cumbia, hip hop and other styles. You probably won't hear an album this good for decades to come. A must listen and buy.
