Los Angeles, California, USA – The turntable wizardry of Spanish group Ojos de Brujo takes center stage with the U.S. release of Remixes From Bari, a blast of neo-Mediterranean bangers that brings the up-all-night sound of afterhours Barcelona to American dancefloors. Conjured up by the group’s brilliant turntablist, DJ Panko, this six-track collection offers up remixed favorites including “Cale Bari,” “Tiempo de Drumba” and a hypnotic reinvention of “Quien engaña no gana” (“Cheats never win”). Also included is a remix from the group’s resident gitano guitarist (and breakdancer) Ramón Giménez.The band will play concerts at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, on March 19, 2005, and a U.S. tour is set for June and July 2005.
Ojos De Brujo Touring Lineup: Marina “La Canillas” Abad – vocals; DJ Panko – turntables; Max Wright – MC vocals, percussion; Ramón Giménez- flamenco guitar, breakdancing; Paco Lomena – flamenco guitar; Javier Martín – bass; Sergio Ramos – drums; Xavi Turull – percussion; and featuring: Elisa Belmonte – flamenco dance; Andre Cruz – video production and direction.
