Ocote Soul Sounds And Adrian Quesada El Nino Y El Sol

If you didn't know better, you could easily mistake El Nino y El Sol for some obscure Latin chestnut from the early '70s-from the Carlos Castaneda-esque album art to the mellow magic contained within, it's got that ol-skool "Acapulco Gold" vibe written all over it. But don't try pricing it up on eBay just yet. Crate-digiristas, take heed: El Nino is actually a side project from multitalented, multi-instrumentalist duo Martin Perna (Antibalas) and Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma), which aims to do for Latin music what Poets of Rhythm did for jazz/funk fusion. Trade in your E for peyote and chill out to some of the nicest flute, vibes and MPC 2000 combinations in many a moon.
