Album Notes
Raw and ready to rock, Carne Cruda hits the scene hard with the unbridled energy of the rowdiest latin music. Blending Surf with Cumbia, Son with Soca, and traditional with indie, the Carne Crudeboys (and Crudegirl) are a plastic flamingo on the neatly kempt lawn of Salsa music, jumping and shouting all over the tennis courts of the Latin traditionalists. When the Buena Vista Social Club gets Red Hot Chili Pepper-ified and They Might Be Giants eat Willie Colon, you know Carne Cruda is rocking the house.

Carne Cruda is a Latin and Caribbean dance band from the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in rocking down global capitalism by playing hard-hitting, booty-shaking grooves to move your feet to.

Leaving few Caribbean ports unplundered, Carne Cruda establishes itself as a purveyor of fine Latin and Caribbean dance music, fusing a variety of influences into one hard-hitting booty-shaking sound. The album features everything from rocking surf-cumbia, swinging-soca, reggae-son and guajira-boogaloo to free-jazz and beyond, taking you deep into the depths of the sea and spitting you back out into a more just world. Keep your eyes peeled, Spicy Sea Adventures will be upon you before you know what hit you.

Members of Carne Cruda include: Camilo Landau from Quetzal and Dr. Loco's Rockin' Jalapeño Band, Charlie Gurke on Baritone Saxophone, Luke Kirley on Trombone and Tuba, and Ayla Davila on bass. Also appearing on this album are a plethera of special guests, including master percussionist Edgardo Cambon, Kevin Kmetz on the Japanese Shamisen, Andy Mendoza formerly of Ozomatli, Marco Diaz of Vission Latina, veteran drummer Paul van Wageningen of Machete Ensemble, David Florez from QBA and O-Maya/AguaLibre / Lauren Hill, and more. This album is really fun and interesting, check it out!

There's magic in the deep.
I was browsing, like music lovers do, and came across this tasty gem of an album. All four days I've owned this cd, it's been spinning.

Think: Ozomatli tours the Caribbean and plays the lounge. I mean that in the best way possible. They rile, they soothe, they make my ears feel sexy and my brain wants to dance.

Thanks Carne Cruda. Diggin' it.


absolutely vital
"Spicy Sea Adventures" it's the amazing journey deep into the surprisingly world of soothing and energizing sounds. It's a kind of happy fusion of tradition and modernity, fun and contest attitude, simplicity and research of rhythmical perfection. This album raise a storm of positives vibrations and good emotions. Escuchando o bailando, cada vez tengo la suerte de sumergirme para unos instantes en un ambiente musical sensual, mestizo e harmonioso. Viva la fiesta de carne (cruda) y hueso!
