Casa de los Babys

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
The soundtrack to John Sayles' languorous character study provides a dreamy, tropical mood with a pan-Latin roster that suggests the unnamed Central American country in which the adoption saga is set. The haunting "De Cara a La Pared" from Mexican-Canadian singer Lhasa kicks off the disc on just the right note of ambient desperation, with blurry production that suggests a Tom Waits tune interpreted by one of the most gorgeous voices you'll want to hear. Two vintage tracks from Cuban doo-woppers Los Zafiros capitalize on the mood of yearning nostalgia, as does the Che Guevara anthem "Hasta Siempre," by Carlos Puebla, and Los Panchos' dependable version of the Cuban ...

The soundtrack to John Sayles' languorous character study provides a dreamy, tropical mood with a pan-Latin roster that suggests the unnamed Central American country in which the adoption saga is set. The haunting "De Cara a La Pared" from Mexican-Canadian singer Lhasa kicks off the disc on just the right note of ambient desperation, with blurry production that suggests a Tom Waits tune interpreted by one of the most gorgeous voices you'll want to hear. Two vintage tracks from Cuban doo-woppers Los Zafiros capitalize on the mood of yearning nostalgia, as does the Che Guevara anthem "Hasta Siempre," by Carlos Puebla, and Los Panchos' dependable version of the Cuban standard "Siboney." Lila Downs, the Mexican-American singer who earned a Grammy nomination for her songs in Frida, doles out her sultry tones on the bolero "Naela." Fans will get a sneak peek at Ruben Blades's next incarnation with the classic son stylings of "Un Son Para Ti," sung in a Cuban-accented lower register, while Rita Moreno, in her role as the proprietor of the Casa de los Babys, sings the Latin American ballad "Quien Sera" and the lullaby "Duerme." Mason Daring fills in the gaps with incidental music on this worthwhile companion to the film.
All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Soundtracks always offer plenty of options, and quite aptly, Casa de los Babys has taken the Latin route -- a pan-Latin route, to be precise. There are three brief interludes from Mason Daring including "The Juggler" with Billy Novick, but they're barely there before they vanish back into Latin sounds. Happily, the music steers away from big names for the most part: Rubén Blades with the wonderful "Un Son Para Ti" is the closest to superstar status here. Mostly it's left of center, as represented by Lhasa and Lila Downs, who both offer aching material. Rita Moreno is a showstopper on both her cuts, but especially on the unaccompanied "Duerme," where her voice glows like a beacon. But nothing compares to Cuba's Los Zafiros, whose lush doo wop -- much more advanced melodically and rhythmically than their American contemporaries -- is enough to make hearts beat softer. There are plenty of other little musical byways here, such as Grupo Fantasma and Los Panchos, but they pale a little in comparison. Still, it's a lovely little trip through Latin sounds that works well enough without the movie.
