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 which blend minor blues and flamenco progressions with Afro-Latin rhythms and jazz chords.  The music is structured with an upbeat and driving tempo, incuding polyrhythmic arrangements such as guaguanco, cumbia, samba, cha cha cha, songo, reggae, son Cubano and flamenco tangos.  

 

   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 Jermey Kaplan, the rhythms are decorated and defined on bongos and congas by virtuoso percussionist

Dave McClean and delivered by the groovy bass lines of Jacob Badger.  Grace McClean lends her smooth and soulful voice to mesmerize the audience in Spanish, English and African languages. Lead guitarist Kameon Cregar adds crafty guitar hooks and effects and also doubles on the Andean charango. Classical music trained, Bolivian native Gisela Rodriquez, adds beautiful solos on the violin.  The all-original music project is led by multi-lingual vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist, Robbie Cree.
