4 stars Mexican band BANDA ELASTICA was formed back in 1983, and with a string of albums released from 1985 and onwards, they became an established and renowned unit exploring various kinds of avant-garde music, but are primarily described as an avant-rock band. "Acqui, Alla y Aculla" is their first live production, released by the Mexican label Luna Negra, and distributed by Azafran Media and Musea Records.

To my ears, Banda Elastica comes across as a vibrant live performing unit, and one that flows fairly smoothly to and from and in between avant jazz, avant progressive rock and free-form oriented variations of those, with a certain emphasis on folk and ethnic music details ? flute and marimba in particular ? that does give their material a fairly unique sound overall. Those with a deep fascination for challenging avant music, and a taste that includes an affection for both avant jazz and avant-garde progressive rock, come across as the ideal audience for this album. If you can recognize yourself in that description you will most likely enjoy this CD all the way through.
