Allmusic gave Awe Owe, the debut album from Helado Negro, four stars out of five, saying it "holds together wonderfully, offering an immediately engaging listening experience that only gets richer with each listen." am New York filed the album under "intriguing equatorial melange of fluttering computer loops, dusty field samples and live instrumentation."
But while Awe Owe has embedded itself into the sweaty subconsciousness of the summer of 2009, Roberto C. Lange, the man behind the vision of Helado Negro, is not content to let it all sit and swelter. Now that fall looms, it’s time to move to stay warm. He is going on tour this Thursday, with a journey that starts in Pittsburgh, weaves through the South, and then ends in Balitmore. He’ll be touring with avant garde composer Jason Ajemian, making for a not-to-be-missed pairing. Details on the tour are here.
