Bardo’s uplifting lyrics, delivered in his uniquely dreamy-romantic style, are bolstered by the backing vocals of New York’s all-female Mariachi Flor de Toloache for a vibrant, colourful carousel of sonic delight.

blending Brazilian Tropicalía with early 1970s psychedelic soul and the romantic pop of bands like Los Ángeles Negros, theirs is an immediately addictive aural concoction. Now they’re making their boldest statement yet with ‘Freedom Is Free’, their 3rd album. Sharp funk grooves show up throughout, but especially on the title song, which reflects Chicano Batman’s decision to foreground the soul and R&B elements of their sound.
