Bombay/España/El Guincho

I must admit, I didn’t really “get” El Guincho’s album “Alegranza” until listening to it on a train ride from Barcelona to Zaragoza.  Looking out over ancient buildings covered in graffiti, blue mountains rising up from rainbow showered plains full of small farm plots surrounded by archaic looking weeds, the music suddenly made sense and provided the perfect soundtrack to the passing countryside.  The mix of history, cultura, scenery, architecture and innovative creativity make Spain one of the most incredible places I’ve visited and El Guincho seems to be good at encapsulating that into sound.  This mind blowing video takes that to a whole new place!  The Sagan-esque intro is pretty awesome too.
