"Infierno CD review"

If you are among those that are convinced that something similar to Fabulosos Calavera and La Marcha del Golazo Solitario was no longer at the reach of your ears, we invite you to reconsider your position, as long as you have in your hands a copy of this Infierno which seems more like a paradise.

"Germany show 2008 - Objekt5"

And there is no doubt that it is really ,out of this world. A wild mix of cumbia and other dance rhythms and Latin Rock (even though we had already seen this is Argentinean and Spanish bands), but such energy we have seen in very few occasions.

"Belgium LIve Review"

And the start couldn't be better than with Rocola Bacalao, an energetic ska band from Ecuador. The nine members jumped around frantically while putting their heart and soul in their trumpets and guitars - which worked very contageous on the crowd at the Cahier Club stage. Their best songs mixed cumbia (and even merengue) with clever lyrics and an incredibly positive attitude - they just wanna have fun.

"Review Rock al Parque - Colombia"

Fortunately, there was a change of attitude. When Rocola Bacalao (Ecuador) showed its ska with flavor of cumbia and punk, even the most metalhead applauded. Thanks to accessible humor and the humility of this band, the Sunday entered, finally, in its zone of tolerance.

Bio

An incredibly intense ride of Latin music, color, adrenaline and good vibes! That is probably the best you can do when trying to describe in a few words a RoCola Bacalao show. With its fun-filled Latin fusion, its amazing 5-piece brass section, intelligent lyrics and great attitude, the Ecuadorian band will shake any stage and audience in the world.

With over 450 live shows played in the last 11 years, RoCola Bacalao has become one of Latin America’s fastest growing acts. Three European Tours (2008-2010) and their last record distributed in Europe, the USA and Japan with Übersee Records.
Highlights include successful appearances at SXSW (USA, 2011), Pfingst Open Air (Germany, 2010), Wereldfeest (Belguim, 2010), Karneval der Kulturen (Germany, 2010), BAFIM (Argentina, 2009), Polé Polé Gent (Belgium, 2009), Rockspektakel (Germany, 2009), Paulusfeesten (Belgium, 2009), Antilliaanse Feesten (Belgium, 2008), Polé Polé Beach (Belgium, 2008), Hestiv’oc (France, 2008), Rock al Parque (Colombia, 2007), and Quitofest (Ecuador, 2006). RoCola Bacalao has also played in world know venues as Sala Apolo (Barcelona, Spain), and the Open Lucht Theater (Antwerpen, Belgium).

After seeing them live, you will understand why RoCola Bacalao has been chosen twice, in 2005 and 2007, by Rolling Stone Latin America as one of the 8 best bands of the region. The same magazine chose Infierno, their latest CD produced by grammy winner Tweety González (Shakira, Gustavo Cerati, Fito Páez), as one of Latin America’s 50 best CDs in 2007.
The band’s fusion of cumbia, merengue, salsa, ska, reggae, swing and rock and roll has already amazed audiences in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Austria, Colombia, Argentina, Perú and Ecuador. Let yourself be the next person to be devastated by the RoCola Bacalao explosion!!!

The Chimbest band of the Universe!

¡Un paseo increíblemente intenso de música latina, color, adrenalina y buenas vibraciones!

Con más de 450 conciertos y 4 producciones discográficas en sus 11 años de historia, RoCola Bacalao se ha convertido en la banda con mayor proyección internacional del Ecuador y en una de las bandas con mayor proyección de Latinoamérica. Lleva 3 giras consecutivas en Europa (2008-2010) y un total de 60 presentaciones; en el 2010 editó su última producción gracias al convenio de manejo internacional logrado con la disquera independiente alemana Übersee Records.

Luego de verlos en vivo entenderás porque RoCola Bacalao ha sido escogida dos veces, en el 2005 y el 2007, por la revista Rolling Stone (edición latina) como una de las 8 mejores bandas de la región. La misma revista seleccionó a Infierno, su último CD producido, por el ganador de varios premios grammy Tweety Gonzalez (Cerati, Fito Páez, Shakira, Soda Stereo) como uno de los 50 mejores discos del 2007.

Se resaltan sus apariciones en grandes festivales como SXSW (EEUU, 2011), Pfingst Open Air (Alemania 2010), Wereldfeest (Bélgica 2010), Karneval der Kulturen (Alemania, 2010), BAFIM (Argentina, 2009), Polé Polé Gent (Bélgica, 2009), Rockspektakel (Alemania, 2009), Paulusfeesten (Bélgica, 2009), Antilliaanse Feesten (Bélgica, 2008), Polé Polé Beach (Bélgica, 2008), Hestiv’oc (Francia, 2008), Rock al Parque (Colombia, 2007), y Quitofest (Ecuador, 2006). Adicionalmente, ha presentado su música en salas y auditorios de renombre mundial como la Sala Apolo (Barcelona, España), el Open Lucht Theater (Amberes, Bélgica) y ha compartido escenario con bandas como The Skatalites (JAM), The Heptones (JAM) Molotov (MEX), Los Amigos Invisibles (VEN), Bersuit Vergarabat (ARG), Louise Attaque (FRA), Mad Professor (U.K.), El Cuarteto de Nos (URG) entre otros.

Su fusión de cumbia, merengue, salsa, ska, reggae, swing, música tradicional ecuatoriana y rock and roll ya ha sorprendido a varias audiencias en Alemania, Suiza, Holanda, Bélgica, Francia, España, Austria, Colombia, Argentina, Perú y Ecuador. Deja que tu seas la siguiente persona en ser devastada por la explosión de la RoCola Bacalao.
