A fiery song for this week's song selection to get your week started on the right foot and it's one of my personal favourites! ;)


Fuego 77 is the only and self-titled album of this NYC/Puerto Rican orchestra from 1978 on the Alegre record label. Even though it is their only album to date, it is one of the best albums of the 70's. Excellent guaguanco's like this song make this a high-calibre album. 

The orchestra was lead by conga player Noey Mats and the pianist, arranger and composer Marcos Hernandez, who wrote 8 out of the 10 songs on the album.


I give you, with much pleasure... FUEGO 77 with "TENGO UN TUMBAO"! :D

Song of the week - Pobrecita, La Maxima 79

And we are back from the winter break with our first song of the week of 2015!


To get you guys going, here is a great track from one of the contemporary orchestras we really like. This Orchestra from Italy is no joke, they produce totally HOT Salsa Dura with a great deal of swing. The track we are featuring if "Pobrecita" from their awesome CD ‘Regresando Al Guaguanco”.


This is their debut album and since coming out it simply exploded on the dance-floor and made the band a house hold name amongst salsa lovers all over the world. Completely new and fresh sound of Salsa, made for dancers! Enjoy!
