La Magia Existe is Sismo's follow-up to their critically acclaimed album Pueblo (2004, discos nancy). Recorded between Bogota and Los Angeles, the album mixes Sismo's evocative sonic landscapes with a sound that is more live oriented. Synths and bells now make room to guitars and drums, never losing an essential sound that is very Colombian in a way always difficult to point out.
All tracks mixed by Brock Babcock except tracks 4, 10 and 12 mixed by Harvey Marin and tracks 11 and 14 mixed by Manuel Diaz.
Mastered by Les Camacho.
Art by Alex Somers.
