Picture this: 11 musicians, dancers and dj join forces in 2014. Drawn together by their passion for and hypnotized with the infectious grooves of Salsa, Boogaloo, Afro, in short, the Latin fervor that runs in the veins of those who live with a positive flow in their body and minds. 11 funkateers that go by the name of Banderas. Waving their caliente strut. From Tokyo, Japan.
Matasuna Records is proud to continue its groove-ridden journey with its latest release, served on a must-have 7” platter with two incredible tracks from the Cuban fueled Japanese power combo Banderas led by Kazuma Koseki on piano and former Orquestra de la Luz member Dategen on congas, Naohito ‚Temjin ‚Yomoda from famed Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro on wild, loud and fabulous trumpet and Izpon, known for his leading work in Kingdom Afrorocks and collaborations with Tony Allen.
Tema de Banderas is a stomping high speed and incredibly tight Latin barrage of salsa at its spicier! Crisp horn section, relentless percussion and impossible to stay still while listening to it, this is a sure shot tune for every dance floor, anytime, anywhere.
The flipside Banderas Mambo begins by letting you know that another high speed groove chase is ensuing, in a crescendo that immediately grabs you by the hips. A track filled with mouth-watering breaks for the dj and dancer alike, be prepared to be hit by the ritmo. The Banderas rhythm. Universal, proud and scorching hot, a release not to be missed or you just might miss this dance. [info from label]
