Grupo Fantasma, the finest and funkiest latin orchestra to come out of the United States in the last decade, continues to ride the momentum of an enormous 2007 into the new year. From their critically acclaimed performances with Prince in London this past August (their first trip overseas and in front of 20,000 people) to a national airing on PBS’s Austin City Limits television program, the band continues to expand their musical horizons and earth-shattering live shows. Other significant accomplishments include NPR features on Latino USA and Song of the Day, recording of a BBC Radio session at the infamous Maide Valle Studio in London, the Fantasma horn section performing at clubs and festivals with indie-rock stalwarts Spoon, licensing of albums for distribution in Europe, and several guest spots on international releases. The band is currently wrapping up recording of a new studio album to be released in late spring of this year, which will be supported by touring in North America and Europe.
