Gangster ass Puerto Rican shit:
Colombian slave uprising shit:
Been getting introduced to more
of this incredible music. It's just
as expansive & rich as any other
I've come across. One thing that
has grasped me has been the
African percussion influence in the
coastal regional music of Colombia.
A lot of it sounds like afro-beat,
but in spanish, even down to the
backing chanting vocals.

Just tagging doggies that come to
mind who might appreciate this as well
That breakdown 2 minutes in was totally unexpected, and awesome.
Since you mentioned good percussion
Been listening to this album quite a bit lately. My favourite Afro-Cuban Jazz album. Chucho is a musical genius, and there's usually some great percussion in his songs, these are two great examples.
I heard this song on University of Toronto radio about 10 years ago. I still love it.
Awesome. Love the clash of
piano & percussion. I haven't dove
into Cuban music yet, so this will
be a great starting point. Thanks
doggy! Appreciate it
The one and only El Vez, The Mexican Elvis
Some brazilian punk, not their best song, but the video's good
Bailar y BBQ
I'm pretty sure this song was in Kill Bill
Ray was born in Texas but he was pretty damn latin
I almost forgot about Paco De Lucia, my neighbour introduced me to him when we were discussing John McLaughlin one drunken evening.
Pretty epic stuff here
I find it fascinating that throughout the decades salsa has become this happy, party-ish but vapid music that yuppies and women like strictly because it's soooo fun to dance.
But its roots are from the street. Willie Colon's album covers look like they come from a 90s gangsta rap album.
This is one of my favs from that time. That trombone in the beginning goes hard as SHIT.
That's a fucking hard cover!
He has a sick one dressed as
a pachuco & pointing his trombone
like a Tommy gun. I've been
listening to nothing but this salsa
clasico. You could hear the struggle.
This "Todo tiene su final" is dope.
Killer piano breakdown half way
in. Thanks dude. Hook a doggy
up with some more from the
genre if/when you got some time.
I've been on a tear with this stuff.
That is a great song.
Maybe you would enjoy this:
The guy has great hooks.
Cheers monkey! Thanks
Playing a bit of "catch up".
That ray Barretto is REAL nice.
Imma look more into him. That
bass in the Prado track is bumping!
Thanks for the contributions Beardo.
Oh man, if you're just starting out, the Willie Colon/Hector Lavoe combos are absolute musts.
La Murga de Panama
El Dia de mi Suerte
Che Che Cole
Then Hector Lavoe's solo stuff:
El Cantante (10 minutes of epicness)
El Periodico de Ayer
Triste y Vacia
El Rey de la Puntualidad
IMO, the crown jewel of Willie Colon's solo work is "Idilio"
I'm going to cheat a little. John Zorn is from New York and he's not latino, but he did a soundtrack for a documentary called "El General" with some beautiful mellow Latin tunes.
"Callen Radcliffe Tjader, Jr., known as Cal Tjader, was an American Latin jazz musician, known as the most successful non-Latino Latin musician".
Les Baxter was an American from Texas
Go to 29:05 for some good percussion
"After becoming well known as an arranger and composer for swing bands in the 1940s, he developed his own style of world music-influenced easy listening music, known as exotica, during the 1950s and 1960s." That style he developed uses lots of bongo's and percussion
