DJ Will "Quantic" Holland has once again put together a dynamite multicultural band of exceptional musicians to perform a modern take on music from the Caribbean, Latin America, and Africa. His latest album, Tradition in Transition, is a global mix of jazz, funk, soul, and salsa that still retains the trademark Quantic groove.
I love several of the tracks, but this beautiful tune sung by Colombian folk singer, Nidia Gongora, really speaks to me. I defy you to listen to it and not shake your hips!
Quantic and His Combo Barbaro are kicking off their latest tour in Europe shortly, but those of us in SoCal get a special treat. They'll be performing in LA at the Echoplex on Aug 15th and in the OC at the Detroit Club in Costa Mesa on Aug 16th. I bought my tickets yesterday. :) Buy yours here.
