Grupo Fantasma’s critically acclaimed "Sonidos Gold" has been nominated for a Grammy, a fitting end to a 2008 that was packed with rave reviews and massive touring across North American, Europe, and beyond. Not to mention backing Prince at Coachella and the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and a ten day engagement to entertain troops stationed in Kuwait and Iraq.
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 on their new album Sonidos Gold - it's 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 ensemble band has forged a fresh new standard of excellence in latin music.
