Ojos de Brujo : 15th April


Ojos de Brujo, from Barcelona, fuse flamenco's driving rhythms with hip-hop, funk, punk and other stray sounds snatched from the Barcelona street. Support comes from Calexico and Amparo Sanchez collaborator Depedro.


The group calls this musical mashup 'Jip Jop Flamenkillo', a sound that catapults flamenco into the 21st century without losing any of the power or passion of the music's roots.

Anyone who's heard the Gypsy Kings' brand of rumba catalana - which married traditional flamenco guitars to fiery Latin percussion - will recognize Ojos as the latest installment in flamenco's inclusive ida y vuelta (or 'go and return') tradition of assimilating New World sounds into the repertoire.
