ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For eight years El Tule (el TOO-lay) has been honing its unique sound combining influences of Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, Cuban and Reggae, in Austin TX. The music is about history, art and culture often focusing on legends and tales of the mystical. Fan favorites include "Tres Viudas", the true story of three dancing widows in beautiful San Antonio, "La Ruta Maya", a pounding tribute to the famed Mayan Route and "Mi Niño", reminescent of a colorful childhood life on the border. The sound..."El sonido" that El Tule brings to each performance naturally transcends all cultural and social backgrounds.

Simple, El Tule is for those who love to dance, feel good and enjoy the positive expression of music.

Full length recording "Volumen 1" and "Volumen II" are available at iTunes and many other online retailers, Waterloo Records, Cheapos, Border Sessions.Com, CD Baby.com, Barnes and Noble or catch a show in a town near you.

Por los últimos seis años, El Tule ha venido perfilando su sonido que es una combinación de Cumbia, Merengue,Cubano, Salsa, Rock y Raggae, entre otros. La música ha sido influenciada por el arte, la historia, y la cultura; enfocando leyendas, tradiciones y lo místico. Entre los favoritos de los "fans" están: "El Chupacabra," una espeluznante interpretación de un animal que le chupa sangre de las cabras o corderos. "La Ruta Maya" donde se otorga tributo al famoso camino de los Mayas, y Media Noche, una elegía a los sueños evocados entre las horas de la media noche y la aurora. Los Sonidos musicales están constantemente en una progresión que nos transportan a recuerdos, experiencias e influencias; Siempre paralelo a la meta principal del grupo, la música adquiere su propia dimension y en forma natural trasciende los niveles culturales y sociales. Dicho simplemente , El Tule está para aquellos que les gusta el baile, sienten y disfrutan todo lo que es positivo en lo que se expresa con la música.

El Tule, Hecho in Austin
This is the third CD by this terrific Austin, Texas band. This album gets closest, so far, to capturing their live sound. Making music that makes people dance is what it's really all about, and after all the widespread musical influences that are brought together and shaped into excellent original songs, and all the fine arranging and strong solo and ensemble playing from everyone in the band evident on this well-recorded and successful CD, El Tule is still best experienced live. If you can't catch them in Texas or elsewhere on one of their rare travel gigs ("la familia lo mas importante..." from Miklo's Cumbia), put this music on and turn it up. You'll see why there is an official El Tule Day (January 16th) in Austin, Texas, and why the dance floor is always crowded and the table-sitter's toes are tapping at an El Tule show. Highly recommended.
