Ocote Soul Sounds And Adrian Quesada ‎"Coconut Rock" 2009

Ocote Soul Sounds is a combo  based in New York with the founder Martin Perna (also known as the genius of Antibalas) and has released severeal albums and singels from 2004 till today. Coconut Rock from 2009 is like a heavenly mixtape of´groovy nu-funk and afrobeat with elements of both ethiopique jazz and soul, with delightful vibes of western psychedelia. Support the band here. Groovy!



  1. One of my favourite bands ever (and friends too!). The ultimate blend of Afro and Latin music. We did 3 remixes for that album, one the band released, one Paris DJs released, and one we gave away for free on http://www.parisdjs.com/index.php/post/Ocote-Soul-Sounds-and-Adrian-Quesada-El-Diablo-Y-El-Nau-Nau-Grant-Phabao-Remix ;-)

    1. That's sounds awesome! Thank you for the link as well, and I totally agree with you about the band, one of my favourites as well, all of their albums are incredible, wish I could see the live. :-)

  2. Love the funky mix of Latin/Brazilian/Dub. Groover's Choice keeps me groovin'!
