ASI LA VIDA

This is Bandidos de Amor's much anticipated second CD release. Their first CD introduced the listener to their unique approach to blending European Gypsy and South American Rumba into a uniquely Southern California acoustic dance music with a strong up tempo festive beat. This CD further explores and develops that approach with the addition of more variety in tempos and some newer influences, including Afro/Cuban, Argentinean, Surf and Latin Balada styles. The moods have more variety and depth. This CD will touch your heart and seduce your senses.

     

 


CALIFORNIA RUMBA

The Bandidos de Amor's debut CD combines the performing talents of Josh, Marcelo, Yussi, Larry G. and several other talented players exploring a new approach to Latin music. It incorporates many elements of world music including Gypsy, Flamenco, Middle Eastern, Central and South American, and even a little Reggae. What's amazing is that they have melted all these influences into their own unique sound and style - developed through their many live performances prior to recording - that they call California Rumba. They present this in an aggressive manner that gives the listener an uplifting experience. The beat that inspires you to get up and dance. This is a very fine collection of acoustic songs played with an intensity that is hard to resist.

     

 


EL PIRATA

This is Yussi's first solo release! In this release, Yussi plays an exotic and energetic style of instrumental guitar music that is spiced with fiery improvisations in the tradition of Eastern European Gypsy, Spanish flamenco and American jazz players. His original compositions blend Spanish and Middle Eastern guitar melodies with powerful Latin and Persian rhythms. His music has sweetness, soul, precision, and youthful energy. He is accompanied on bass by the versatile Larry G. Goldman (a co-member of Bandidos de Amor) and noted producer and arranger. On the drum set and percussion is Martin Flores who also performs with the Bandidos de Amor. Various other guests appear on this wonderful CD and help to give it very unique flavor. This is a welcome addition to anyone's collection.

     

 


Yussi & Django

This CD, from the Yussi & Django Band, is part of the original roots of the Bandidos de Amor band of today. Prior to the formal origin of the Bandidos de Amor, there was the instrumental band led by these two young men who perform an exotic and energetic style of instrumental music that is spiced with fiery improvisation in the tradition of Eastern European Gypsy, Spanish flamenco and American jazz players. Their exciting, virtuostic playing is captured on this CD, accompanied by Larry G. Goldman on bass guitars and some of Los Angeles' finest young musicians in various roles. Their original compositions blend Spanish and Middle Eastern guitar melodies with powerful Latin and Persian rhythms, and the result is an intriguing and playful sound.
