Rosa Rosalia and Bumplings Lost in Out of Space

Welcome back my friends, and thank you for tuning in to another Ruff Luxury mixxup.  On this occasion we hear a handful of records showcasing some of the rootical sounds from around the spanish-speaking caribbean.  From Cuba we have the great Arsenio Rodriguez–bandleader, composer and son montuno pioneer–along with Los Llopis, a group led by Francisco and Manuel “Ñolo” Llopis.  Duo Los Ahijados’ Prendela exemplifies the early sound of Dominican salsa legend Cuco Valoy, playing alongside his younger brother Martín Valoy.  Also hailing from the Dominican Republic we hear some merengue stylings from Yoyito Cabrera and then the New York based Orquesta Fiesta.  Obeah Wedding is a Mighty Sparrow composition here being given the big band treatment by Trinidadian Saxman Cyril Diaz.  The recording was taken live during Caribana 1967 in Toronto and appears on an Abel records LP.  Colombian artists make up the remainder of the mix, with the likes of Fruko, Lisandro Meza, Anibal Velasquez, Chico Cervantes, and Manuel Alvarez y Sus Dangers rounding things out in a fine style.  I hope that you enjoy the songs as much as I do.  Thank you and please visit us again at the Ruff Luxury Bumpling House.
