"The Mexican duo have teamed up with the suitably named Cuban Orchestra, C.U.B.A, to showcase recent album ‘Area 52’. Can this work?

No, nor did we, but their frantic fusion of flamenco, thrash metal and jazz has seen them humbly playing in the big league for a few years now, so why not mix it up."
