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-Cuban 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 Ricardo Oyarzabal, decorated and defined on djembe, bongos and congas by
versatile percussionist Doktor Lee 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.
