Biography

Colombian music icons Aterciopelados aggressively build upon the creative momentum of their last album ‘Oye’ with their latest critically-acclaimed new work, ‘Rio.’ While Latin Grammy-winning ‘Oye’ helped re-establish the band, ‘Rio’ finds Aterciopelados at a creative peak with more politically and socially-charged lyrics than ever before. ...

I have enjoyed this CD from the first listening.
Melissa Camp
The album touches carribean music as a whole, salsa & rumba rythms combined with the alternative rock n espanol that the Aterciopelados have.

Her voice has tremendous range, from husky sultry notes to high notes that linger for eternity.

all right, i don't speak spanish, but i think the international language of music gets the point across here. and beauty is beauty even when one doesn't understand the specific sounds..."el estuche" is probably the best song, although the entire album is strong. andrea echeverri's powerful bluesy voice and hector buitrago's thumping techno beat....it's close to perfect. try it. :)

First of all let me say that I'm a big fan of Andrea Echeverry. She is the lead singer and guitar player for Aterciopelados. Her voice has tremendous range, from husky sultry notes to high notes that linger for eternity. This is Rocanrol at it's best. This band has been nominated several times for a Grammy, it is just a matter of time before they get their due. Innovative, sultry, tropical, jazzy, bluesy, folksy are just a few words to describe Aterciopeldos new sound. The CD is a little different from their previous CD's but this is where they are at now and they have a good view of the future. Based on tradional rootsy Columbian sensibilities this music is high octane jet fuel full of electronic Caribbean beats. It is hard to describe but the CD is a sort of techno inspired Columbian Rocanrol. The charismatic Andrea teases with her seductive voice throughout. It makes no difference what she is singing about, it is her unique voice that is so delightful. The band is tight and compliments her to the max. Standout tunes are numerous, including the bolero-folksy-jazzy-hip-hop tinged El Estuche, the upbeat Cosmos that starts out slow and builds to a crescendo that rocks, to the hipnotic Doctora Corazon to the sambaesque Manana, it is all good. Another reviewer said this is mood music, it is, it puts you in a great mood. Andrea te amo!!

I recently saw this Colombian rock band in Boston promoting their upcoming album Gozo Poderoso. They were fantastic! I had never heard of them before until a cousin of mine, who is a sound engineer for the band (I haven't seen him in years), gave me a call out of the blue saying he would be in town for a day. I went to meet him and stayed for the show. Again, the show was fantastic! This band has everything: talent, showmanship, originality, and chemistry. They have the potential to cross over to the english market and succeed on their merits. In contrast, Shakira, another popular Colombian artist (who openly claims Alanis Morisette as an inspiration) sounds too much like her idol. Los Aterciopelados is a group worth keeping track of.

This is the first review that I've ever submitted, so I guess the very spirited music moved me. I have enjoyed this CD from the first listening. The singer has a wonderful voice. I wish I could understand what she is saying (the lyrics are included, but they're in Spanish).
Definitely, I'll be taking a look at purchasing some of their other albums and might sign up for a language lesson.

This is an example of how daily life in Bogota is....In a vicarious way. Wild, raw, fun, insightful. A metropolis like Bogota is hard to understand or portrait... But they got it! This is an exellent way for someone to break sterotypes from what a latinoamerican experience might be.Thanks to these artists and their lirics I'm still have a bit of Bogota with me.

Los Aterciopelados have risen to a new high level. After listening to the albumand seeing them in San Jose, CA. I'm convinced that tis album is a new high for the band. The album touches carribean music as a whole, salsa & rumba rythms combined with the alternative rock n espanol that the Aterciopelados have. It's a new sound thats full of soul and rythm. Andrea's voice is a call of love. Sweet delicate and femenine. Grear album. Great songs. Could have had better titles for the songs. Other than that, BUY IT!

I usually go for the more traditional-sounding latin or tropical music, because I know what to look for. But one day I heard a song on the radio and loved it! Called in to find out the artist, and it was this band. I got right on amazon and ordered it, and it's been one of those great experiences from start to finish. I like this CD more and more every time I listen to it. Tropical, modern, latin, even some French influence I think...great! I plan to order their other CDs...

Caribe Atomico is an album you will not get tired of listening to, over and over. It is intoxicating and gets you every time. Aterciopelados break the stereotype against spanish rock. It's got great lyrics and the music in itself is enough! Enjoy!
