Ocote Soul Sounds (the word "ocote" is derived from the Nahuatl word "ocotl" and in Central America is frequently used to refer to coniferous trees) is the brainchild of Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma) and Martin Perna (Antibalas) describing their music as "psychedelic, Afro-Cuban influenced pan-Latino analog funk" and just as with Grupo Fantasma, we were seriously impressed with the music this band turns out. 'Taurus' (the bull is a widely used symbol in Spanish culture, but also both gentlemen's star sign) at times sounds like the soundtrack to a police movie from the 1970s: psychedelic funk topped with a Latin sauce and a sprinkling of afrobeat. More of this!
