Album Notes
Oykalo Hamill (voice, percussion) and Joao Junqeira (guitar, voice) are Sympatiko, an all-acoustic duo who - with great musicians such as those featured on the CD - have earned big buzz from their performances at the Los Angeles based WorldFest 2002 and San Fransisco area World One festivals. Their current, self-titled CD recently debuted at #22 on the NAR top 100 national radio chart as they continue to receive recognition across the United States for their inspired songs of transcendance and beauty.

The Midwest Record Recap says of the CD: "One of those delightfully uncatagorical releases that mixes world, jazz, Brazil, good vibes, solid musicianship and magic into a tasty sonic stew. Ignoring boundries, the duo behind this set puts the music first which is a real treat for anyone that feels like the music business just isn't reaching them anymore." And Greg McVicar, host/producer of Earthsongs exclaims: "This is musical poetry with a pulse; Sympatiko sets hearts on fire!"

Every song on this inspired debut is at once old and new, colorful and captivating and weaves a spell both uplifting and mesmerizing. Sympatiko defines what world music in the 21st century is all about: a future less constrained by geography and culture in a world that grows increasingly closer.

CD instrumentation:
voice, indigenous and ethnic drums including tabla, dumbeck, djembe and Native American ceremony styles; guitars; acoustic and electric bass; violin cello.

launa prince

soul satisfying music
A unique pleasure for the ears and the soul. Sympatiko's music causes me to feel attentive to my own soul, and at the same time connected to nature, history, this world, and the people who occupy it.
The timeless music somehow honors things deep and old yet has a contemporary appeal as well. Check out Mother Terra.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

In a magical meeting of world music with acoustic folk, blended warmly with new age and light jazzy pop, Sympatiko strikes a balance between music that is accessible and instantly moving as well as deeply thoughtful, socially aware and culturally diverse. Gorgeous vocals, reminsicent of Sting, warm and sensual Latin textures meeting up with hints of classical Indian music and Native American threads make for a vivid, heterogenous composition. Hints of Robbie Robertson's world music and pop mixture might come to mind at times but this compelling duo lets their muse and creativity defy and transcend traditional genre boundaries, resulting in lulling songs that act like poetry to the heart. A beautiful disc.

Suzanne Baldon

Sympatiko is a lovely collection of wonderful rhythms and deep textures that recalls a variety of cultures. I plan to play it for my anthropology students in the Global Cultures class I'm teaching in Fall '04 as an example of intercultural communications. The students will enjoy it!
