Fresh from its debut at the London Olympics, Ondatrópica brings together stars of legendary Discos Fuentes cumbia and salsa albums alongside a new generation of tropicalistas. Co-helmed by bassist Mario Galeano (leader of Bogotá cumbia futurists Frente Cumbiero) and Colombia-based DJ Quantic (a.k.a. Will Holland) on guitar and accordion, this 12-member super session features composer Alfredito Linares (piano), singer Markitos Mikolta, Grupo Niche cofounder Wilson Viveros (timbales), Michi Sarmiento (clarinet), Pedro Beltrán (flute), and Jorge Gavira, arguably Colombia’s finest trumpeter.
Just added! Sergio Dias, the guitarist and co-founder of legendary Brazilian psychedelic band Os Mutantes and co-founder of the Tropicalia movement, makes a rare solo appearance.
