LOS FULANOS

LOS FULANOS

BandLatinFunk

Their concerts are wild parties, where Afro-Latin rhythms come together with a thousand other things, most of all, Soul, Boogaloo and other latin rhythms. It’s no wonder, either. Los Fulanos cut their teeth on the small but very lively Spanish Latin funk and soul scene and new mestizo school.

Biography

For some time now, seeing Los Fulanos play live has been one of the best things to do in Barcelona, or anywhere else, for that matter. The band brought back that riffraff (dissolute) vibe of pre-Olympics Barcelona, when the great city on the Spanish East Coast wasn’t the safe haven of style, fashion and fine foods it is now, and things were a lot more gritty, sleazy and, to be honest, a whole lot funkier. Their concerts are wild parties, where Afro-Latin rhythms come together with a thousand other things, most of all, Soul, gaining Los Fulanos quite a reputation, whether they play on their own, or backing legends like Spanish rumba king Peret or Latin soul hero Joe Bataan (like they did on his Afro-Filipino tour).

It’s no wonder, either. Los Fulanos cut their teeth on the small but very lively Spanish Latin funk and soul scene, where a surprising amount of bands, most of them veteran stage warriors, battle for the attention of a crowd spoilt with weekly gigs by internationally successful local groups like the classic soul-funkers Sweet Vandals, Speak Low or Pepper Pots, or new school mestizo bands like Fundación Tony Manero and Muchachito Bombo Infierno.

The band’s previous phonographic endeavors have been quite fantastic, releasing several cover versions on 7” vinyl on labels like Vampisoul and Lovemonk, acclaimed by every self-respecting soul dudes and dudettes, and backing aforementioned Joe Bataan on his latest album.
