Latino robots


Last week I had a possibility to enjoy a performance by Senor Coconut and his orchestra during Fete de la musique in Luxemburg. Surely, it's a music for fiesta! Latin meets jazz meets electronica. Well known pop classics with a totally different flavour. Somehow contradictory teutonic coldness (e.g., Kraftwerk) coupled with south american vividness.

It is an actual band with brass instruments, marimba, vibrophone, drums and percussions, and a vocal. Maestro Uwe Schmidt himself with a stone cold face is standing with his laptop a bit in background thus contrasting to lively jazz musicians. You may like or dislike his latin affair, but no doubt that he is a great producer (standing behind such monikers as Atom Heart, LB, Flanger among many others). I found their show greatly entertaining.
