Ojos de Brujo
("Sorcerer Eyes" in English) is a nine-piece band from Barcelona, Spain, who describe their style as "jipjop flamenkillo" (hip-hop with a little flamenco). The band sold over 100,000 copies of their self-produced Bari
album, and has received several awards, among these the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award for Europe in 2004 (having also been nominated in 2003).
Their success is also notable for being achieved without the aid of label backing; they set up their own label, La Fabrica de Colores, to get complete artistic freedom for Bari
, away from the pressure they perceived from their record company Edel Records for their debut Vengue.
