Afro-latin blues! 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
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 music is defined by the big percussion sound of Matthew Capri and is driven by the groovy bass lines of El Caminante, who also contributes on guitar and composition. The songs are written, produced and arranged by slick fingered lead guitarist, Mike Roberts and multi-lingual vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Robbie Cree.
