Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada goes by the creative alter ego of Cornelius and has been a sought after producer/remixer for a wide variety of artists including Beck, Blur and even James Brown.You might not know of him because his last album came out over 10 years ago. We can correct that with a new down-tempo song sung in his native tongue. It’s called If You’re Here.
Honoring their 21st anniversary, Ozomatli cover hits from the classic songbook of Mexico with songs like Besame Mucho and invite artists like Herb Albert, Juanes and Gaby Moreno to record with them. We focus on a gorgeous version of La Bamba which features Kyle McDonald from Slightly Stoopid.
