 Adrian Quesada announces the release of ‘Boleros Psicodélicos’, a sprawling and singular tribute to the golden era of balada music.

 The brand-new album from the GRAMMY-nominated guitarist, producer and Black Pumas co-founder serves as a celebration of the super funky, slightly delirious and deeply soulful sounds that transcended the cultural boundaries of Latin America throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s.

 Featuring vocals from Puerto Rican icon, GRAMMY-winner and former Calle 13 member iLe, Colombian-American visionary Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Mexican R&B star Girl Ultra, as well as Angelica Garcia, Gaby Moreno, contributions from living legends such as Marc Ribot and Beastie Boys musician Money Mark, and many more, ‘Boleros Psicodélicos’ consists primarily of original Adrian Quesada compositions, as well as covers of La Lupe’s ‘Puedes Decir De Mí’, Jeanette’s ‘El Muchacho De Los Ojos Tristes’ and other balada classics.

 All twelve tracks were produced, engineered, mixed and largely performed by Adrian Quesada, honouring and extending the influence of a personal obsession that he has cultivated over the
past 20 years.

 Similar to his acclaimed 2018 album ‘Look At My Soul’, which traced the deep roots and relationship between Latin and Texas music, Adrian Quesada sees every song on ‘Boleros Psicodelicos’ as both a history lesson and a step towards a newly imagined, more united future: “I always wanted to pay tribute to that sound that I was already hearing in my head without realizing that people had already done it. Balada changed the face of Latin music forever. If something like that happened today, it would be normal because everyone’s connected on Instagram. Think how powerful this sound had to be for everyone to be connected through the songs. As someone who grew up speaking two languages and living on both sides of the border, I love how much music can transcend barriers and boundaries. It really is a universal language, especially back then.”
