We teased and hyped it up yesterday… and today we have the pleasure of premiering the First Single off of ONDATRÓPICA’s highly anticipated second album, “Baile Bucanero.”
The track entitled, Bogota, is an ode to the city where this new album was partially recorded in. And it offers up a mellow Caribbean, Calypso feel, with supporting synths and a pervasive Clave behind the playful melody.
Mario Galeano had this to say about the track “Bogota”:
“The track Bogotá was originally written by Michi Sarmiento in the early 70s after his first visit to Colombia´s capital, Bogotá. He never got to record the song at the time, but he kept the verses in his head throughout all these years. When Ondatrópica´s new record ‘Baile Bucanero’ came together, Michi found the perfect moment to release his love song to Bogotá. He gave the song a soca feel to stay in touch with the Caribbean vibes of Providencia, which is the island where we recorded the album.”
“Baile Bucanero,” will be released on March 10th on Soundway Records and strives to showcase a bit more depth into the cultural heritage of Colombia by blending Anglo, English & Spanish influences.
Will Holland aka Quantic & Mario Galeano are once again back at the helm of this project, which includes 35 musicians from different backgrounds, musical styles, and age groups.
