Latin and Beyond

Nortec Collective

I recently picked up the newest Nortec Collective disc which is over a year old now. It reminds me of seeing the exhibit of the de la Torre Brothers at the Hispanic Cultural Center some time back. Those guys are amazing artists blending new and old, fine art and folk art into a new fine art they call Meso-Americhanics. One of their pieces included the music of the Nortec Collective as part of the piece. Both the Nortec Collective and the de la Torre Brothers seem to be working from a similar artistic place evoking a comparable sensory response. This week’s Twisted Groove starts off with the blend of Latin and electronic music and moves from there.
