"Un poco de ti" Sleepingbag review
…it’s kind of like what you’d imagine a Spanish Radiohead’s version of “High And Dry” might sound like with a danceable vibe; it has a similar fragile, delicate beauty to the chord structure and a dreamy way of floating us through the chilled-out vibe. Truly a faultless gem of a song… intoxicating to listen to, the good-stuff dreams are made of…
"Un poco de ti" TunedLoud review
This is just a fantastic fusion of musical elements. If you like songs that have a little depth, elements that your soul can feed on, yet at the same time can be a fun and captivating listening experience. This music fits that description. And Cinco Santos knows how to deliver it. These guys deserve to hit it big and I think they will!…
"Un poco de ti" Bandcamp review
Creating a great atmosphere …This song in particular makes me think of some of the best stuff by Counting Crows and Nickelback, where the rock and roll energy blends in perfectly with the band’s remarkable pop edge and interesting latin influences, adding a touch of amazing personality to the album.
"Azucar y amor" Parlante amarillo
Azucar y Amor Is the first single from “Duplicidad” the debut production from Cinco Santos. While their music is a fusion of styles such as rock, pop, flamenco, and contemporary urban rhythms, it has a particular and unequaled stamp by the way they have been greatly combined. Parlante Amarillo, Colombia.
Formed by Lorenzo Montero of Canadian and Spanish decent, Cinco Santos embodies the spirit of Latin fusion incorporating various singers, guitarists, and musicians from Mexico, Colombia, and Argentina. The moving “Azucar y Amor” is a gypsy, flamenco, and fusion tune with jazzy, Latin elements that are ripe with roots, folk, and breezy rhythms. “Nunca Mas” is an edgy, Latin fusion track with a choppy beat and great guitar accompaniment. “Te Quiero Aqui” opens with an industrial element that quickly delves into a Latin jazz and flamenco tune. “Duplicidad” begins with a jingly guitar and bass opening that includes an edgy vocal line that infuses a lighter guitar accompaniment throughout. There is a mix of grunge, Latin jazz, and Latin pop with rock, roots, and folk throughout. Without a clearly-defined path, Cinco Santos feel better forging their own path of music with mixed Latin influences for a truly engaging and charming mix of music. Fans of Latin fusion, jazz, Latin rock, flamenco, gypsy, and South American pop will love “Duplicidad”. ~ Matthew Forss Inside World Music
