Gallery: Ondatrópica at Lincoln Center ‘Out of Doors’

By 30 July, 2012

Colombian supergroup Ondatrópica made their US debut at the Lincoln Center Out Of Doors Festival in New York City on July 27.

The all-star band features greats from the golden age of Colombian music including Michi Sarmiento, Alfredito Linares, Pedro Ramayá Beltran, Markitos Micolta and Wilson Vivero, alongside the two musicians who started this exciting project, Will ‘Quantic’ Holland and Mario Galeano with their bands, Combo Barbaro and Frente Cumbiero.

Ondatrópica fuses old with new to create a progressive sound which mixes traditional Colombian styles such as cumbia, gaita and champeta with boogaloo, ska, beat-box, MCs, dub and funk. They even played a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man”!
