Ondatrópica ProjectPosted on: April 23rd, 2017 by SoFlaNights.com
Colombian musician, Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will Holland (A.K.A. Quantic), have joined forces to create the Ondatrópica project. This project, which is supported by the British Council, exists to explore and expand the tropical sound of Colombia in its rawest form and to marry it with the cool sound of London. The aim of exploring a musical path with these pioneers and visionaries from the 60s, 70s and 80s, is not about nostalgia, but is a reaffirmation of the validity and contemporariness of the concept. With this in mind, classic standards of production take centre stage, with equipment and techniques typical of analogue sound – for example, vintage microphones and taking advantage of the expertise of key musical figures such as legendary engineer and producer Mario Rincón, responsible for some of the best recordings of the 1970s. Tickets are $15 per person.
