Oro by Chocquibtown
Released: Mar 2010
Label: Nacional Records
Some have dubbed them the Afro-Colombian Fugees, but Oro proves that ChocQuibTown is much more interesting than that, stewing in humid rhythms and beguiling us with its casual use of funk, rock, hip-hop and salsa to get its point across. What is that point? It's something to do with breaking silence, breaking down barriers, asserting your place in the world -- and doing it with a smile rather than a dagger. For its first U.S. release, the group collects a sampling of joyfully promiscuous hits from its two previous albums, including the anthemic "Somos Pacificos."
