Orishas
Antidiotico
Universal Latino
By Ernest Barteldes

This compilation, which includes some hits, some newly recorded material and some previously unreleased material, offers a well-rounded taste of this well-regarded Latin fusion band. Known for expertly and carefully mixing traditional Cuban influences with sounds culled from hip-hop and other genres, Orishas emerge with a music that is both unique and familiar at the same time. One definite highlight is “Represent Cuba,” which features English and Spanish vocals by R&B singer Heather Headley, who sounds perfectly comfortable within a Latin setting. Also worth hearing are “Hay Un Son” (“There Is A Sound”) and “Naci Orishas,” which both successfully showcase the sonic mix that the group cultivates so well. While cuts like “El Kilo” and “Quien Te Dijo,” featuring Miami MC Pitbull, essentially amount to filler, they don’t mar the brilliance of this disc, which can be thoroughly enjoyed despite its weak moments.
