SALVADORA ROBOT - MERIDIAN BROTHERS

Meridian Brothers are back with a new studio album, the bizarre andwonderful ‘Salvadora Robot’. Heading deeper into the tropical rhythms of

Latin America and the Caribbean each song on the album focuses on a

different style and playfully twists it into Meridian Brothers’s surreal

landscape. Released on Soundway Records on 16th June the album was

recorded at Eblis Álvarez’s appropriately named Isaac Newton Studios in

Bogota, Colombia.



Originally formed in 1998 it was the previous album ‘Deseperanza’ that

brought Álvarez’s Meridian Brothers to the attention of the wider world.

Released worldwide in 2012, the album’s unique aesthetic and freaked-out

blend of Latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves won him new fans the

world over. DJ and tastemaker Gilles Peterson selected ‘Guaracha U.F.O

(No Estamos Solos...)’ as his favourite track of 2012.



‘Deseperanza’ focussed heavily on salsa rhythms but on his new release

Álvarez based each track in a different Latin American style. For

example ‘Somos los Residentes’ finds it inspiration in Dominican

Republic merengue while ‘Baile ultimo….’ is a slow and sad reggaeton.

The lyrics talk of a man who has been sent to the electric chair because

he was dancing too much reggaeton, a style that isn’t accepted as “good

taste” within Colombia.



The release of ‘Deseperanza’ brought them to Europe for the first time,

making appearances across Europe and at some of the prestigious festival

including Roskilde and Transmusicales. The band will be returning to

Europe this summer.
