On Aterciopelados' new album, "Rio" - along with the incredibly talented, Hector Buitrago, the group take it to a new level. I was aware they won a Latin Grammy for their last album "Oye" - yet, this album feels heavier and speaks to the world we live in; given the context of these times, it is a welcome soundtrack for hope, healing and growth. The album art alone is a beautiful testimony to life, water and color... [to contrast the concrete in Bogota].
The album starts off with the song "Rio" - a call to the rivers, to return back to their purest form - calling back the fish...it's a powerful song and lush in its arrangement. The album takes you on to different tempos, landscapes and sounds. A favorite song of mine, "Tomate" is a playful juxtaposition to more serious songs like "Bandera" - which speak about the violent nature of immigration and borders. The record ends calmly with "Aguita" - with traditional Andean flutes to carry you away to what is next...
Hasta la proxima...
Get it now, this will be one of the most important release of 2008.

Expected more from this CD but its not a bas one either. Very tribalish? I was looking for something more classic but still has a few good songs in it.Published on August 3, 2011 by pam
I like the way Aterciopelados always mixes the different sounds, electronic music with folklore from Colombia and the Andes.Published on March 30, 2009 by F. Molina
Continuing in true "Aterciopelados" nature, this album will not disappoint. The album is full of femininity and just plain good music. Read morePublished on October 21, 2008 by Khristian Berrio
