A follow up to our most popular series: Mi Swing Es Tropical. Instead of the tropical sound clash we have limited ourselves strictly to classic Afro-Cuban sounds. Maybe if we say 'salsa' this will ring a bell. However, much of the music featured was recorded in the 60s long before the term salsa was coined.

In this mixtape we focus not on the mechanical and often tinny sound of today's salsa staple, but on the raw soulful side that will make your feet start to shuffle spontaneously even if you're not a dancer. Included are classic sub styles like descargas (raw and percussive improvistations), charanga (60s style flute and violin led grooves), mambos, son montunos and even some merengues. As long as it's raw and contains those beautiful montuno piano riffs.
