MALO 7'' Single
Almas Fronterizas reflects the streets of Latin-Soul, Blues and Indigenous Psychedelia forming a hard-edged sound coming out of the San Francisco, Bay Area. Led by cousins Gilberto Rodriguez, Karin Rodriguez and Carlos Rodriguez. The sound is as raw as it is live, becoming a unique voice among musical contemporaries.
Almas Fronterizas’ 2017 self-released Rosa Tropical EP is an evolution of sound and approach to the rock canon as well as San Francisco musical culture, incorporating Afro-Latin rhythmic diversity, hard-edged cumbia, colorful guitar grooves as well as Chicano-Soul sensibilities reminiscent of 70’s Latin-Rock bands like Malo and Toncho Pilatos. Expanding the member base, the band has begun to musically experiment and incorporate percussive and brass arrangements in recordings as well as live performances. Recorded and produced by Grammy Award Nominee Greg Landau.
