Ondatrópica is a new project spearheaded by Mario Galeano (bandleader of the Colombian band Frente Cumbiero) and British producer Will Holland (aka Quantic). The duo brought together a variety of esteemed veteran and younger Colombian musicians at the legendary Discos Fuentes studios in Medillin, and the end result is this seamless, vibrant blend of traditional Colombian styles like cumbia and champeta with hip hop, funk, dub, ska, boogaloo and more, with a raw, full sound fusing lots of traditional instrumentation with an impressive display of modern and traditional rhythms and textures. 8/17/2012 - Don Yates
