The Grammy-award winning band Grupo Fantasma is a nine-piece musical institution from Austin, Texas specializing in a vibrant fusion which it calls ''Latin-Funk.'' The band is best known for its association with Prince and has performed and toured nationally and internationally since 2000. The Wall Street Journal has described their sound as ''music both new and traditional…vibrant fusions that transcend easy classification.'' The group's music has been featured in several high profile television shows including ''Breaking Bad,'' ''Weeds,'' ''Law & Order'' and ''Ugly Betty'' and the band has also appeared on Austin City Limits and as the backing band for Prince on the nationally televised ''Alma Awards.'' Their 6th album ''Problemas'' is the follow up to the Grammy-award winning ''El Existential'' and was produced by multi-Grammy award winner Steve Berlin of Los Lobos and recorded by Jim Eno of Austin Indie group Spoon.
Grupo Fantasma's raucous, good-time mix of funk, cumbia and soul emerged from the clubs of Austin at the start of the century, bringing with it a fresh sensibility for Tejano music. Now, the band faces a challenge: How do you make that great idea even better? ''Problemas'' answers the challenge with Grupo Fantasma's best songs yet. The album doesn't break away from the way the group does things normally; it's another danceable record, with lots of musicianship in its grooves. But there's something about the way Grupo Fantasma pulls it off. Everything seems to come to the band with ease, as genres burst apart in the most organic possible ways. --Npr 10/21/15

If you like funky latin music driven by great percussion and a stellar horn section, you will love this band.
My only complaint is the album is too short !!!
