Alarma ‘Ignites’ Northeast LA and Beyond
By DOTTIE PARIS
Alarma has a new album called World Ignition that blends world music and alternative with surprisingly good results.
The core of the band is comprised of Pedro Martinez, Alessandro Morosin, Greg Panos, Eduardo Sandoval.
The Northeast LA-based Alarma has international flavor. They take Latin beats and create original music that is inspiring and upbeat. They mix calypso, ska, African and middle eastern influences. The band has performed on Fox 11’s Good Day LA.
The album is not dissimilar from the previous release: Alarma has now self-released two full-length albums: Ripe Conditions in 2014 and the recent World Ignition.
On the album are Pedro Martinez on lead vocals, guitars, keyboard; Alessandro Morosin on guitars, backup vocals; Richard Esparza on bass and backup vocals; Eduardo Sandoval on drums and percussion; Rito Fonseca: drums; Ulises Rodriguez on accordion; Guillermo Rodriguez Fiffe (English translation by Pedro Martinez); All other songs by Martinez/Morosin
Mixed and Mastered
The album was mixed and engineered by Jeff Rayl (Live at the Raylz studio, Orange, Calif.); it was produced by Pedro Martinez and Jeff Rayl and mastered by Digiprep Mastering, in Silverlake, Los Angeles.
