Product Description

Amazon.com

The name of Federico Aubele's new record references the Pan-American highway, a road that stretches--except for a 54-mile gap in the Columbian rainforest--from northern Alaska all the way to the southernmost tip of Latin America. Built as a supply chain during World War II, long stretches of it are more dirt than concrete, and less than obvious signage could leave you hopelessly lost. It's more of an idea than a road really, a metaphor for the complicated connections between these two continents. For Aubele, it's a way to summarize the fused cultural mismatch at the heart of his sound. As on his 2004 debut Gran Hotel Buenos Aires, Panamericana is grounded in Latin guitar, tango, and Argentine flavor, but it's also steeped in a more modern brew of trip-hop, dub, and ambient textures. The combination works, of course; released on Thievery Corp's ESL label, it fits nicely with the subgenre of ethnic-infused acid jazz that's also sprung up around artists like Gotan Project and Fila Brazilia over the last decade or so. Still, one wonders what Aubele's music would be like without the velvety bass hooks and electronic sheen. His guitar work here, though not as prominently featured as it was on Gran Hotel, beams through the production rumble like filtered sunshine as it wraps around a mix of male and female voices (all singing in Spanish). He could probably ditch the whole fusion approach and release straight world music (à la Seu Jorge, say) that matches or exceeds the material here. But though it can get weighed down by its reverb-laden haze, Panamericana's airy melodies and sensual tunes will still set you adrift in a warm sea of daydreamy armchair travel. --Matthew Cooke

At first listen, I didn't think this was as good as Gran Hotel Buenos Aires, his first album. In the end though, it is--this album has a more consistent groove--some of it is even danceable. In part, this makes it sound a bit more generic, and a bit less distinctive; there is less of a clear Argentinian center on this disc.

This album doesn't have the highs of the first album--no song is as good as Diario de Viaje or Contigo--but the tone is more consistent and even than Gran Hotel, which had some extremely slow, dirge-like songs that broke up the rhythym of even a 5-star album. As good as Gran Hotel was, it isn't easy to listen to it all at once. This album is more coherent, and easy to listen to all the way through, any time day or night--it represents the growth of an excellent artist. The song with Amparo Sanchez of Amparonoia is excellent--they really should do an album together!

This album is an undoubted evolution since the first. This album has the smoky beats and the groove expected from ESL and anything produced by half of Thievery Corporation (Eric Hilton gets production credit). What this doesn't sound like is another TC album with a different artist title. En Cada Lugar is an excellent intro to the album if your looking to skip around. Federico is a talent that is great to find. Great album, can't wait for more.

Panamerica is a great midtempo CD. However, it doesn't begin to offer the same experience has FA's first release. This CD focuses much more attention on vocals rather than the music and beats. Also panamerica doesn't include the same infusion of the dub flavor and FA's guitar talents to its beats which is why I loved Gran Hotel. Panamerica is still a great addition to your collection just set your expectations correctly. It doesn't match up to Gran Hotel but not much does. Best tracks (La Esquina, Maria Jose, La Orilla, Corazon, & Su Melodia).

Has a faster,more danceable, and more poppy feel than Gran Hotel. Probably better to liven up a party with, but for everyday listening just doesn't have the brooding beauty & impact of Gran Hotel's tunes.

Also, he sings more on this one, which is not a good thing and turned into a disaster in "Amatoria".

Excellent delicate, natural music with perfect relaxing argentinian cafe atmosphere. It ask me to fly to Buenos Aires.

I had the pleasure of seeing Federico Aubele last summer at the Hollywood with Thievery Corporation and others as one leg of KCRW's World Music Festival and he was amazing. I love his first disc Gran Hotel Buenos Aires and find this one to be possibly as good but not better. go for the first one if you are buying for the first. Like Gran Hotel Buenos Aires it is all in Spanish set to trip hop beats. It is xtremely mellow with less emphasis on Argetina tango but rather a broader musical palette results. The sexy female voices enhance the sensuality of the disc making it one of those discs for late nights. "La Esquina' is a perfect example of the sensuous nature of the music. The female vocals echo romanticism and sexuality that is set to a back beat with interrupting Latin guitar licks. Things get a little more lively on "La Orilla" but the sexy whisper voice(like a Latin Marlyn Monroe singing happy birthday Mr. President) still shouts candle light in the bedroom. The disc is pretty safe without any groundbreaking ideas but pleasant nonetheless. All the tracks fall within the barely over three minute range with the exception of "En Cada Lugar" that comes in at over four minutes. This is a laid back disc made to enjoy with someone special. Recommended for romantic hearts.

Every few years I come across a record that just floors me. Something fresh that has a really good vibe start to finish. This album is one of those albums. In short, Panamericana is an album that captures one's mind and allows them to drift to s different place. A chill voyage accompanied by seductive voices and spanish guitar.

If you are sitting there at your computer debating if it is worth separating yourself from your hard earned money for this disc, seriously just buy it. You won't be sorry. This is one of the best purchases I've made in recent memory.

Overall this is not a bad CD. I consider it rather a "side B" of his first CD. The songs have the same dreamy melody as in the first release, but that does not mean they are bad to listed to. I like the voice of the lady who sings in most of the songs; her voice is charged with melancholy and lends itself pretty well to FA's guitar playing style.
