We are back in the studio and will share some the tunes with you. This is a work in progress for a future latin release.
Check out the new Los Chicharrons remix of Brooklyn based Bastard Jazz recording artist, Captain Planet ft. Brit Lauren.
Los Chicharrons old school mixtape from Ramon Santana back in the days in NYC …. Enjoy!
We have done a DJ mix with some afro mashups, Fela, Manu Dibango and added some of our accapellas on top. Feel free to download..
“….this is an irrestistible, potent mix of house and brass-heavy afro-funk….Opener ‘Kounandi’ perfectly sets the tone: all insidious bass, swinging horns and flute, and a blinding vocal from Mama Draba. ‘Saramba’s Song’, riding in on a powerful horn and funk guitar riff, features another outstanding singer in Saramba Koyoté. The lolloping ‘Koko’ and the infectious, hook-heavy ‘Ma Do Nar’ are just two more highlights among many. Life is sweet.”.
