SummaryESL Music is proud to present Ocote Soul Sounds and Adrian Quesada's stunning debut album El Nino Y El Sol. This is a unique musical collaboration between Martin Perna and Adrian Quesada. They are founding members of two of the world's most successful and progressive afro/latin/funk big bands, Antibalas and Grupo Fantasma, respectively. Antibalas (Brooklyn, NY) has been credited with reviving the afrobeat sound popularized by Fela Kuti while Grupo Fantasma (Austin, TX) has been called "the adventurous musical offspring of Los Lobos and Mano Negra."
The result,El Niņo y El Sol, is a hearty sonic stew of soulful flavors spanning from funk, to afrobeat, to Latin, to hip-hop and beyond. Soundtrack to the lost film of the same name, El Nino Y El Sol is at once a haunting and unforgettable musical journey.
