(((Sonorama Podcast))) No.11: Tropi-power!

  1. -:-- / -:--

Hello peeps, we’re back again this week bringing you another sonic cocktail of Latin rhythms from across the globe. What is Tropi Power? Well we’d like to think of it as all those great Afro Cuban flavors and influences that of course once took Latin America by storm and the world as well, and  that continue to shake hips and feet to this day. And so this week we dig into our crates to bring you some tasty rhythms from across the latin spectrum: from swinging boogaloos from Peru and Puerto Rico, an electric samba found on a promotional hotel tourism Lp,  Japanese pop sung in Spanish, a merengue about lice, yikes, some Colombian salsa y accordion, to some old school cumbias from Colombia and Cuba. Finally to wrap things up a  little arabesque cha cha cha with a  great moody flute and strings complete with great vocals as well.

Also after 10 podcasts we’d like to says thanks to everyone who’s been listening, enjoying, and passing our link to others, we appreciate your support and hope you’ve been enjoying the blog as much as we have producing it. Musically with this podcast, we’ve been thinking of expanding our musical vocabulary even further and we bring you a little sampler of the many more flavors we have to offer. From the beginning we didn’t just want to be another funk, rock, or this blog, but a space where all genres and musical varieties could be appreciated and that most of all that curious listeners could enjoy of little of it all.  Enjoy the tunes.  EB & CG
