Ojos de Brujo

Ojos de brujo is to flamenco what the Gotan Project is to tango, which is to say the group provides a refreshing twist to a traditional music, in this case the music of southern Spain. While the flamenco base of the music is unmistakable with its guitar style and clapping, the group fuses in African beats, Cuban piano, and Cátalan rumba. The music is fresh and interesting, it's catchy without being "poppy". From their second album Barí (meaning "joy" in the Gypsy language Caló) to their most recent, Techarí (free in Caló), the group continues to put out great modern flamenco fusion music, self-described as "hip-hop flaminquilo".
