4.0 out of 5 stars a gritty Latin martini January 25, 2005
Former Bodean and popular session musician, Michael Ramos, ventures out for a debut solo project. In the past, he has worked with The Rembrandts, Patty Griffin, Paul Simon, John Mellencamp, and Ani DiFranco. Loteria de la Cumbia Lounge gets its title from Ramos' studio. "Cumbia" is a popular, accordian-heavy music from Columbia, cheery ans sometimes cheesy music of the peasants. This is a mellow Latin martini, combining danceable urban grooves with an occasional nod at borderline kitsch with a twist of grit and traditional Latin instruments. From the intriguing Latin pop of "El Indio" and "Mexicanos" to the mid-tempo instrumentals which recall Sergio Mendez or Esquivel ("Romanticos Desperados," "Volcanico"). Multi-instrumental Ramos performs some of the album himself, inviting guest musicians like Brian Standefer and Russell Scanlon to add to the remainder of the songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm & Cozy March 2, 2005
Verified Purchase
This was an impulse buy after I caught a review on NPR. Some impulse buys pan out, some don't. Luckily, this one did. I teach English at a continuation high school. When the students write, I sometimes want some music that keeps us all going and yet doesn't call unwarranted attention to itself. This record is perfect, a sort of Latin Hip-Hop with club influences (no slamming beats). Since most of my students are Hispanic and Black, this is a great compromise, and it's off-beat enough to keep them interested, yet guessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Infused Latino Sound March 12, 2005
By PBilly
Wow - what a great find! My husband I heard a song on an XM world music station and went out and purchased this CD shortly after. Beautiful sound that is hard to describe. Part Latino, part jazz, part dance. Perfect for a party or for listening to while hanging out around the house. My favorite CD of the year for sure. I highly recommend you listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop playing it! September 28, 2005
Verified Purchase
Man, is this a winner! A nice updated contemporary loungy Cumbia, at times with echos of 50s & 60s Cha Cha and at other times sounding slightly of Manu Chau, but truly unique all the same. Great soundtrack for art openings, funky retail joints and eateries, galleries, your living room, your car, anywhere. Just buy it, you'll never want to take it out of your CD player... .

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! November 29, 2006
Verified Purchase
My husband heard a clip on the radio and he asked me to do a search. I could only find little snippets but I was curious. I went ahead and bought both albums and they sound awesome. Its just different from whats being played on the radio. This is the kind of music I would play at a dinner party (not a formal one). If you like music thats just different, this would be the way to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic approach to Latin music August 27, 2005
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful collection of new songs, mostly instrumental, all with a Latin flavor. The musicians are all first-rate. You'll want to play it again and again.
