Weaving the musical bridges connecting Cuban son, salsa, timba, and funk, Ola Fresca (Formerly Jose Conde y Ola Fresca), in it’s first 10 years and two world acclaimed, award winning, original albums under the direction and creative energy of Jose Conde, has evolved a swinging, fearless tropical Latin sound directly from Brooklyn, New York. From their rustic Cuban roots tinged 2004 debut Ay! Que Rico, to the funky, eclectic Best Latin Album in the 2008Independent Music Awards(R)Evolucion, the band meandered through a spectrum of Latin roots styles and instrumental formats and fused liberally, all while making music that was praised by many such as the NY TIMES for having an “emphasis on songs with characters, wordplay and mild social ideas...good for dancing and thinking!" The format of the band morphed from large “conjunto” ensemble to small combos featuring percussion, brass, saxes and flutes and sometimes Cuban tres, and then mixing in electric guitar, B-3 organ and even the funky drums of the Meters’ legend Ziggy Modeliste.
