Is fusion the trend? Ojos de Brujo (Eyes of the Wizard), an independent band from Barcelona, has become popular in world music and European Pop.

Flamenco is clearly central to their sound, but they definitely not pure flamenco. Their music reflects the past of flamenco and its multicultural roots. Looking at the gypsies themselves, a people from Pakistan, India, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Spain are definite hybrid, diversity, and multiculturalism.

In Ojos de Brujo’s music, what blended with flamenco is Afro-Cuban percussion, rap hip hop, funk, ska and reggae, Indian tabla drumming and much more.

The following song "Todo Tiende" is a hybrid of flamenco, Indian and hip hop.

Like it or not? Welcome to the world of fusion.
