Yet another edition of the radio show that is designed to spread the voice of tropical Latin rhythms. This is program number 70 and brings you all the tastiness for your waistline.
We will start by listening to new songs that are traveling through cyberspace and we’ve captured for you dear listeners. We have Masilva from Peru next to Dj Chakruna doing a remix of “El poder”, from the United States “Turbo Sonidero Futuristico” doing a version of “La Rebuscona”, and with a more classic Colombian great Alfredo Linares, from Oakland, California with cumbia-dub “Candelaria Música” and Kenya Wganda group.
In the time we have left we will hear three mixtapes made by Quantic AKA Will Holland, mixing Boogaloo, Salsa and traditional Cumbia from Panama.
Mixtape: TIPICA Sound: A short expedition into the much overlooked tipica cumbia sound of Panama.The heartache, melancholy and joy in the Panamá Tipica sound is hard to match and like no other to experience. It comes from a rich background of regional musical traditions, carnival rivalry and hotbeds like the legendary ‘Festival en Guarare’. As I understand it, Panamanian cumbia was first played on violin until the arrival of accordions on the Isthmus, most early acordeoneros were violinists first and foremost. This mixtape comprises of some of the best 45s from the Herrera and Los Santos provinces, from the mid 50s through to late 60s. Over the last few years I’ve had the good fortune to meet several of these wonderful artists. Featured here: Dorindo, Papi Brandao, Oswaldo, Fito Espina, Ulpiano, Ceferino and more… (photo compliments of Papi Brandao). ¡Viva Panamá!
Mixtape: Vacilon, Boogaloo + Guajira. Another roots vinyl only mixtape! this time ‘Puro Vacilon’ from 60s Panama City, Caracas, Santo Domingo, New York & Los Angeles.
Mixtape: Beautiful and deep dancing songs. Heres a special selection to start of 2013 featuring African, Caribbean & Eastern sounds. An all vinyl roots mix to warm up laptops and ipods.
