Act 3

"La Calavera Catrina - the elegant skull" 
Entranced by Baron Samedi's voodoo magic Catrina drifts in and out of consciousness. She is unaware of what is real anymore, she sees the figures of her deceased mother and grandmother but they are out of reach, out of focus. Is she dead or in limbo? She calls out to them but they do not answer.
The Loa carry her to Baron Samedi's catacomb.

"You are mine"
Catrina awakens, she is tied at the wrist and waist against an altar. Baron Samedi leans over the now terrified Catrina: wild eyed and clearly deranged he leaps around the catacomb contorting his body and face in celebration of his brilliance.

“A Vision in Blue”
Catrina is clearly unimpressed by Baron Samedi's convulsing. In an attempt to put Catrina at ease (before taking her soul for all eternity) he conjures a vision of a 50s jazz cafe. 
The two of them sit around a circular table in a packed jazz bar. Cigar smoke fills the room as Baron Samedi listens intently to the band.
All of of a sudden, conscious that his ruse has been unsuccessful, Baron Samedi becomes once again enraged. He begins to knock tables and throw chairs in a fit... before stopping in his tracks to appreciate the music... then continuing his seemingly uncontrollable frenzy.

We've been writing and performing as Voodoo Cartel for over 5 years and got together based on our love of Funk.

Funk is not all we do though, and Rock/Prog/Jazz/Fusion feature across our Instrumental prog-funk escapades.

We present our first concept album "Dia de los Muertos". Written as one 37 minute piece, to be enjoyed in its entirety.

Thanks for taking the time to listen!
