Known as the funkiest, finest and hardest-working latin orchestra to come of the United States in the last decade, Grupo Fantasma's trademark sound has translated comprehensively onto their new album El Existential. The record is an incredible and animated performance interwoven with mature and intelligent songwriting that is equally at home with the classic 1960s Fania All-Stars sound AND the progressive benchmark set by artists such as Manu Chao. Guided by the deeply rooted traditions of cumbia, salsa, funk, and pyschedelia this masterful Grupo Fantasma has forged a fresh new standard of excellence in latin music.
