MondoMusic Festival Presents:


Jose Conde y Ola Fresca

Jose Conde y Ola Fresca perform at the MondoMusic Festival at the Hiro Ballroom, Saturday January 12th.  A Fresh Afro-Cuban Wave Moves from Revolution to Evolution.


With a subtle rhythmic intensity in voice and song, Jose Conde takes his Cuban roots and grafts them onto a dizzying range of Afro-Latin styles. From Puerto Rican bomba to Haitian compas, Cuban son to New Orleans swamp –funk, the singer-songman’s striking and timeless new album, (R)Evolución (Mr. Bongo Records UK), won an Independent Music Award for Best Latin Album, and has been hailed the world over as a “brilliant and thrilling” (Billboard) “smorgasbord of sounds that keeps listeners in a diasporic daze” (Trace). Conde and his New York-based band Ola Fresca’s 2007 feature performances included Chicago World Music Festival, Santa Monica Twilight Dance Series, Kennedy Center, NY Global Rhythm Festival, North Carolina Latin Festival, New Orleans Voodoo Festival and more. 3 songs from (R)Evolucion have been licensed for compilations on Rough Guide Records and another for a comp cd titled Café Cuba is upcoming on Putumayo records. Jose Conde also recorded a children’s album in 2007 titled Baby Loves Salsa due out with accompanying book on Rope a Dope Records/Sony in June 2008.
