Known as the funkiest, finest and hardest working Latin orchestra to come out of the United States in the last decade, Grupo Fantasma's trademark sound has translated comprehensively on Sonidos Gold -- it's an incredible and animated performance interwoven with mature and intelligent songwriting that's equally at home with the classic 1970s Fania All-Stars

Overview

Known as the funkiest, finest and hardest working Latin orchestra to come out of the United States in the last decade, Grupo Fantasma's trademark sound has translated comprehensively on Sonidos Gold -- it's an incredible and animated performance interwoven with mature and intelligent songwriting that's equally at home with the classic 1970s Fania All-Stars sound and the progressive benchmark set by artists such as Manu Chao. Guided by the deeply rooted traditions of cumbia, salsa, funk, and psychedelia, this masterful ensemble band has forged a fresh standard of excellence in Latin music. Special guests on the album include legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker, Fania All-Stars pianist and arranger Larry Harlow, trombonist Greg Boyer (Prince, Parliament Funkadelic), and a bonus track/remix by producer Toy Hernandez (Control Machete, Juanes, Alejandro Sanchez).
