Early last year, bassist Mario Galeano of Frente Cumbiero and British producer Will "Quantic" Holland brought together forty-two of Colombia's most creative artists. In the Discos Fuentes Studio in Medellin, young talent met up with musicians who have been established names since the sixties. The aim was to re-interpret the tropical musical heritage of Colombia with new approaches in composition, arrangement and production in a classic and mythical setting. The live sessions were all recorded in a single take and now connect the generations forever. Ondatrópica (2012) is the organic and, above all else, swinging final result of this special collaboration. At the North Sea Jazz Festival, Frente Cumbiero and Quantic can now bring this fascinating project to life on stage. An intoxicating mix of South American cumbia, Latin grooves, electro and driving, funky London beats. Sitting still won't be an option during the live performance of Ondatrópica.
