Latino Resiste is proudly to present latinAfrica!
An essential release for those who want to know what is going on with the latino underground movement and the connection from the african roots in modern latin music.
We have not only some of the best names in terms of artists you’ll hear, the best “cantaoras” from Latin America:
Petrona Martinez, or Etelvina Maldonado ( get Re-mixed majestically) for Example.
but also the ones who made the compilation possible.
PALENQUE RECORDS C.E.O, Lucas Silva, joined Caballo in the selection!!
For the people who don’t know about Palenque Rec; this is like getting Rick Rubin on board doing a rock compilation, or David Byrne doing a so-called “world Music”.
Lucas has given Latino Resiste part of Palenque Records Discography including the iconic Sexteto Tabala de Palenque, and Alfonso Cordoba aka EL BRUJO, who was so important that Colombian government gave him ‘Gran Order of Cultural Merit” -Colombia’s highest cultural recognition- to name a few of the amazing songs we have for this FREE compilation.
And for the first time we add a GRAMMY nominee giving their music from their just brand new release!!
Locos por Juana, also donated their Champeta for latinAfrica.
In the compilation you’ll find songs that define this new and very unique sound.
Each one of the songs represent an extension of African Influence in Latin America.
From the Roots sounds of Las pilanderas Momposinas or Sexteto Tabala, going thru the original pata pata with latin flavor, to even include Uproot Andy & Geko jones amazing version of Manuelita.
But what you’ll enjoy and see the most is perhaps the most underrated African-related genre in all LatinAmerica
We have the pioneers Luis Towers, The Mystic Orchestra, Faraon Bantu , from one side, Son palenque, Locos por Juana or Dj Bunuelo (whose track can perfectly fit any club in the world)and we also include the original and first electro-champeta by Kinky Electric Noise or the african inspired drum n bass from Radio Rebelde!
Note: El agua is performed by Faraon Bantu Sound System feat DJ RATA ( B/C the name is too long we made it short in the artcover just to Faraon Bantu, although DJ RATA is a name to behold in the champeta circle)
