Description

Zemog El Gallo Bueno plays 21st Century Latin music, reflecting all of the contradictions and cultural tensions of what it means to be Latin in America in 2008.

Bandleader Abraham Gomez-Delgado, of Peruvian descent, left his native Puerto Rico as a child and relocated to the US, and as a result Zemog’s music incorporates everything from bomba and plena to Sun Ra and Van Halen in an uncategorizable, unique sound.

Downbeat magazine says Zemog “does for Afro-Latin music what Tom Waits did for Weillian cabaret, bringing a madcap energy and willful weirdness to the basic ingredients and blowing it up with his personality. …Zemog has developed an original, satisfying spin on Latin rock that reveals a understanding of the plena and bomba and a desire to subvert [stereotypical ideas of ‘Latin music’]. Gomez-Delgado grounds his group’s music in clave rhythms, but ranges far and wide in his melodic constructions without ever suggesting a glib mish-mosh of ingredients.”
