Ojos de Brujo

Saw this show last night at the beautiful new performance space at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.


I don't know how in the world they would be able to transfer that energy and passion and precision and freedom within tightness into digital form, but if any remnant remains, it will be worth buying.

This band from Spain follows Flamenco culture -- picking up bits and pieces of the traditions it comes across. This band adds rap and hip-hop scratching and beat boxing to beautiful gypsy melodies and out-of-this-world percussion. The lead singer is strong woman personified and raised to legendary status while still somehow remaining quintessentially herself. Don't we all want a bit of that for ourselves? If so, click here and buy.
