All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
So what is Latino Nuevo anyway? It some ways it the child of rock en español, something that's outside the box of any mainstream, while remaining definitely rooted in Latin music. As the collection shows, there's no single style -- it can be the earthy, conscious hip-hop of Rico Pabon, the electronica of Spam Allstars or the punkified stylings of Los de Abajo. Perhaps the unifying factor is in seeking something new and a little different, which certainly encompasses all the acts here, whether it's the veteran Juan-Carlos Formell or Baku. As with all experiments, not everything works (The Welfare Poets are a definite disappointment) but when it clicks, it can be ...

So what is Latino Nuevo anyway? It some ways it the child of rock en español, something that's outside the box of any mainstream, while remaining definitely rooted in Latin music. As the collection shows, there's no single style -- it can be the earthy, conscious hip-hop of Rico Pabon, the electronica of Spam Allstars or the punkified stylings of Los de Abajo. Perhaps the unifying factor is in seeking something new and a little different, which certainly encompasses all the acts here, whether it's the veteran Juan-Carlos Formell or Baku. As with all experiments, not everything works (The Welfare Poets are a definite disappointment) but when it clicks, it can be electrifying, as with Cuban Cowboys, who kick like a mule on "Jardin de La Verdad." There are some well-known names, like Ozomatli, Quetzal and Yerba Buena, along with Héctor Buitrago, one of the linchpins of Colombia's Aterciopelados. They do sterling work, and show that innovation is very much alive and well in Latin music, but it's a few of the not-so-well-known people who spring excellent surprises. Jose Conde unleashes some loving funk, and Quantic's "Sabor" is a feast not just for the feet, but also for the head. Excellent stuff indeed.

    Another great compilation from World Music Network

    Just a few months ago I discovered the musical jewels that World Music Network offers and this new release is not less valuable. The combination of musical flavors delivers an exquisite banquet to the most demanding musical palate. While some of the selections offer a more traditional latino sound, the magnificent work of the Spam Allstars and up-and-coming latino-alternative band Baku offer the most inspiring and innovative work. I personally look forward to hearing more about these two acts either from World Music Network or form their respective labels. In all, this album is a must-have if you like latin music and want to raise your music collection's bar a notch with some unique and catchy tracks.
