Batacumbele

Con Un Poco De Songo
CD (Disco Hit 1692), Released 1989;
Produced by Frank Ferrer / PJ Gumbe
Arranged by Batacumbele
Editor's Pick:
"A significant recording by some of the leading musicians out of Puerto Rico, dedicated to the preservation of Afro-Caribbean rhythms and the folklore of the island of Puerto Rico." (Rudolph Mangual, 98/99 Catalog)
"Batacumbele is to contemporary Puerto Rican music what Irakere is to contemporary Cuban music. Hot, terrific musicianship, great compositions and producer Frank Ferrer's jazzy touch." (Nina Lenart, 94/95 Catalog)
"My introduction to 'songo' was through this recording. An all star band featuring the likes of 'Cachete' Maldonado, a young Giovanni Hidalgo and Eddie 'Gua Gua' Rivera. Debut albums don't get any better." (Raul Rico, 94/95 Catalog)
"This important Puerto Rican group took Cuban songo and made it super-hip. They had an amazing sound and this is one of their best albums. Even today this record still sounds fresh." (Sammy Figueroa & Rachel Faro, 94/95 Catalog) (DR, 1995-01-01)
