Album artwork for Desesperanza by Meridian Brothers

180 gram vinyl with free mp3s featuring two bonus tracks. straddling the line between new and old, meridian brothers' mischievous blend of latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves is the creation of eblis lvarez, one of the key figures of the experimental music scene in bogota. as with all of the meridian brother's releases, every instrument on 'deseperanza' was played and recorded by eblis himself. a true avant-garde guitar player and composer, eblis also plays in mario galeano's band frente cumbiero and was one of the 42 musicians involved in the recording of ondatrpica. meridian brothers are at the core of a burgeoning music scene with cumbia, salsa and currulao all being explored by a new generation of colombian musicians. last year's "meridian brothers vii" received key recognition from new york's names you can trust, who combined two of its tracks on a highly collectible special edition 7". 'desesperanza', meridian brothers first fully-fledged worldwide release, is dedicated exclusively to salsa and tropical music, twisting it through a dark and theatrical psychedelic soundscape but never abandoning the traditional aesthetics.
