Carne Cruda celebrates the release their album Oaklands Tight August 6

Carne CrudaCarne Cruda will be celebrating their new CD “Oakland’s Tight” with an all-star CD release  party on August 6th, 2010 from 7pm-11pm at Era Art Bar and Lounge in Oakland, located at 19 Grand Avenue at Broadway in the Uptown district. Along with Carne Cruda, De Bahia a Bahia and The Cuban Cowboys will also be performing, hosted by MC Dr. Loco. According to Oakland Magazine, who recently awarded Carne Cruda’s “Oakland’s Tight” the Best Theme Song about Oakland award, this is an party not to be missed.


Who is Carne Cruda you ask?

Carne Cruda is the matured result of experience musicians touring the world as the backup band for such diverse acts as Ms. Lauren Hill, Omar Sosa, Tito Puente Jr., John Santos, Quetzal, Susana Baca, Kepa Junkera, Rico Pabon, The Cuban Cowboys, Jesus Diaz, Dr. Loco, Alex Cuba; the list goes on and on. When they came home from their gigs playing with salsa bands, funk groups, cumbia conjuntos, jazz combos, and rock power trios, they formed a creative collective that brought all these elements and more to a simmer under the fire of the hyphy, norteño, and banda beats blasting from the trunks of lowriders cruising by their South Fruitvale industrial warehouse home.

Their upcoming album is a testament to their musical skill. “Normally, once we get the basic tracks down we have to go back and replace just about everything,” points out four-time Grammy®-nominated producer Greg Landau about the recording process. “With Carne Cruda’s ‘Oakland’s Tight’ we recorded ten songs in one day, and all the parts stayed. That way we were able to really spend the time focusing on the mix, getting killer sounds, and inviting guest artists.”

Whether it’s traipsing across Europe on a musical adventure, backing up adventurous artists on the road, or delving into the very definition of Latin music and emerging with a fun yet thought provoking new album, Carne Cruda has blossomed into the house band for the Bay Area Post-Latin movement. “It’s clearly ska, it’s rock, it’s funk, soul, surf, all these things, but with a Latin pulse relentlessly pushing through,” quips Mathew Val Hall of Santa Cruz. “I could dance all night!” This kind of enthusiasm follows Carne Cruda around the world from Oakland to Macedonia as they push their Post-Latin concept on the people of the world.
