Que Chevere! is the second album on Freestyle Records by Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers, and to celebrate that fact, Ray Lugo himself put together this incredible mix containing the finest in boogaloo and latin music.
The Boogaloo Destroyers' sound is inspired by the warmth, diversity, and youthful spirit of classic New York Latin Boogaloo of the 1960s, yet at the same time, as composer and lead vocalist, Ray feels he is bringing some of his afrobeat sensibilities and vocal personality to the proceedings, to make it fresh for today's audiences. He also told me he feels the Boogaloo Destroyers serve the dual purpose of emphasising his pride in being Latino as well as helping to build a musical bridge for people from around to world to come together and learn a little bit about each other, and with this sophomore release, he's gonna do just that.
Que Chevere! is out right now on LP, CD and digital download formats:
