..."This is not the usual way for latin jazz, I rather hear classical latinamerican styles such as tango and bolero mixed with contemporary and improvised music... a good example of the way in which improvisation brings new life into a tradition.
the music is greatly enriched by all these influences… And Méndez is a beauty of a singer”
Live @ Pletterij || Ben Taffijn - DraaiOmJeOren - Aug 2020

Fuensanta Méndez (México): vocals & double bassGuillermo Celano (Arg/NL): guitarMarc Baggiani (Arg): drumsWhere intuition and awareness play together, voices, drums, and strings mingle in a freedom dance.Fresh, riotous, rooted, sometimes abstract, sometimes avant-garde or wacky, always beating.Argentinian rhythms, Mexican boleros and originals seasoned with soundscapes, poetry, absurdism, improvisation and a non-challant postmodern approach.

The new album Grillos featuring Martín Sued on bandoneon got two more reviews:
"Antimufa brings us an Argentinian narrative in nine unique stories of contemporary fairy tales and pure passion.
Grillos is a source of inspiration."

“…splendid melodies and beautiful interplay... a wonderful example of the relationship between Latin American tradition and jazz…”
Ben Taffijn - DraaiOmJeOren- Aug 2020
Antimufa music is now digitally distributed by Audio Maze.
"Excellent music on this remarkable, delicate work with no empty words.
A journey beyond talent through one of those albums that reward with unveiled surprises every new listening.
Where is our home? BBC Trio wonders. They answered it themselves. In the music my friends… In the music."
