Description

Contemporary covers of Puerto Rican classics, Vampi Soul have curated something very special right here. "Perico" (which translates to parakeet) has been a standard for all Latin bands since its release in the late 1950s. Here we find Orquesta El Macabeo paying respect with bold horn refrains and emphatic harmonies on the chorus. The 1979 released "Carnaval", meanwhile, gets a thundering cumbia style cover from Bio Ritmo. Two wonderfully contrasting snapshots of Puerto Rican culture, one ace release.
