about the album



“Drawing on influences as diverse as the Clash, Bob Marley, Inti Illimani, Manu Chao and the folk music of Venezuela, La Otra Banda (Spanish for "the other band") is a conflux of globalism, tradition and Third World colonization. Three- fourths of the band live in Madison, while the lead singer resides in Spain.”-Wisconsin State Journal

“A trio of musicians originally from Venezuela, now slowly transplanting to Madison, bring us a teaser of their world beat amalgamation of South American melodies purposely infected with global influences.” -Maximum Ink, Madison, Wisconsin

Honorable mention in the 12th Annual Unisong International Song Contest
