Floyd or Ondatrópica.

Arnulfo Carazo: lead vocals, acoustic guitar, synthesizers
Iván Hernández: alegre, congas, backing vocals
Álvaro Olmos: bass, backing vocals
Rodrigo Peña: tambora, bombo leguero, drums
Camille Floriot: trumpet, female gaita, backing vocals
Gabriel Ray: trombone, male gaita
Olga Pavía: clarinets (feat. “El Francer”)
Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto (feat. “El Mohán”)


The album:

PsychoTropical’’ is a true musical journey that skillfully blends traditional Latin American sounds with modern and psychedelic touches. The tracks are both catchy and contemplative, offering a harmonic and rhythmic richness that will take you to unexplored musical horizons.

Here’s a broad spectrum of the topics addressed: firstly, the simple and wild party (La Conjuntivitis); the sadly familiar crackdowns since 2020 during festive demonstrations in Toulouse (Folkloriptica); social issues such as modern slavery (La Cumbia Libertaria) or the Colombian armed conflict (Fango). Los Guayabo Brothers approach their Colombian identity in a more introspective way (Origins) and also evoke their adopted French culture (El Francer).
