CANABRAVA (LP)
12" Vinyl NL 31.03.17
combo los yogas was a short-lived early colombian salsa band from medelln directed and arranged by anbal jos angel echeverri, the famous antioqueo keyboardist known as anbal angel or simply ann. employing barranquilla native johnny mor as his lead vocalist and a full combo with trumpet, trombone, congas and timbales, los yogas recorded a fantastic collection of cover tunes in the guaguanca, son, guajira, descarga, and cha-cha-cha rhythms. the sound is very raw and hard, something that makes this obscure 1968 discos fuentes record a sought-after collectors item. thanks to the inherent quality and execution of its repertoire, canabrava provides a wonderful snapshot of the influences and early development of the genre of salsa in 1960s colombia.
