If there’s one thing we Latinos know how to do, it’s to party! I don’t say that lightly. I take my salsa dancing very seriously. Problem is, I haven’t been getting much of it lately, and by “lately” I mean count in years, not days or months. This mamá doesn´t get to fiestar as much as she used to, or would like to. But, who´s to say I can´t dance whenever I feel like it? That´s just what I´ve been doing in my office, in the car, in the living room and while cooking as I crank up Putumayo´s latest masterpiece: Latin Party.
Esta no es cualquier fiesta. This is Putumayo´s ode to Latin music past and present. A tastefully curated selection of gems in the best rhythms of bugaloo, salsa, funk, cumbia, son, ska and dancehall. The new collection includes 12 tracks by more mainstream Latin artists such as AB Quintanilla and Ozomatli, but also delivers in the Putumayo tradition of giving light to exceptional musicians with smaller, more artsy audiences and giving us the joy of discovering them. Such is the case of Peruvian salsera Cecilia Nöel, whose featured track “Así se compone un son” is classic, get-up-and-dance salsa greatness.
Latin Party is the CD you want to have to put your friends in the right dancing mood at your next fiesta or to impress anyone with your Latin music coolness. It´s also just perfect for your everyday, private and funky party at home.
You can get Latin Party via La Tiendita and also try your luck at winning a copy below.
