Odiseo

San Diego at night from the sea.

The odyssey of Ulises Santiago, an undercover FBI-DEA informant from 1975 to 1985 until he disappeared shortly after his last covert operation.

Odiseo is a concept album recorded by Dave Ryder and Dan McHugh from October of 2008 to August of 2010. It is a modern day version of Homer’s Odyssey, with the songs and storyline reflecting the events that occurred in Homer’s epic.
