Album artwork for ¿Donde Estas Maria? by Meridian Brothers

The boundary-pushing Colombian group returns to Soundway with another unique album.
Dreamy psych-folk blending traditional Latin rock with tropicalia and lush string and choral arrangements. Meridian Brothers is a tropical / psychedelic group from Colombia, formed in 1998. Led by composer Eblis Alvarez, a pioneer of the alternative music scene in Bogotá, the band continuously explores and experiments with alternative ways of playing instruments and electronic media. Meridian Brothers’ sound a is huge palette of influences and inspirations. Drawing from traditional Latin rock (including Colombian, Argentinian and Mexican) as well as Brazilian tropicalia, for this album Alvarez incorporates string instruments - in particular the cello, both bowed and
plucked - a timbre rarely used in his previous works. Lead track ¿Dónde Estás María? is a proclamation of love for a spiritual guardian - and a taste of the dreamy psych-folk journey on which the album embarks. Mel­low vocals and delicate cello riffs put a light spring in the step, while fuzzy bass and the gentle thump of the percussion and bells drive the song at an excitable pace.
