OJOS FEOS

Afro-Latin Blues (with a social conscious)

   Mastered in the Pacific Northwest but with roots in Africa, Mississippi, Cuba, Jamaica, Spain and the Andes; Ojos Feos plays all original compositions blending minor blues and flamenco progressions with Afro-Latin rhythms and jazz chords, structured with an upbeat and driving tempo, often using alternate time signatures. 

 

   The songs bleed out the hardships of the politically oppressed and marginalized, portray man's search for faith and his pleas for God's forgiveness and in the Delta tradition, relate both fondness and frustration with the opposite sex.  The tempo and core of the music is led by the steady drumming of Dr. Dave Fischer, decorated and defined on bongos and congas by virtuoso percussionist Giovani Cruz  and delivered by the groovy bass lines of El Caminante, who also contributes on guitar and composition.  Gaia Oyarzun lends her smooth and soulful blues voice to mesmerize the audience in Spanish, English and African languages.  Chilean guitarist and dub/effects specialist Gonzalo Villa adds crafty guitar hooks and slick solos.  Gonzalo also arranges and produces the all-original music with multi-lingual vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Robbie Cree.
