Y Si Esto Se Acaba Que Siga El Boogaloo (Lovemonk, 2012)
Y Si Esto Se Acaba Que Siga El Boogaloo (If All This Ends, Keep On With The Boogaloo) is the latest album by Barcelona-based band Los Fulanos. The Spanish ensemble is deeply inspired by the boogaloo sounds of the 1960s and 1970s soul and funk.
On this international release, Los Fulanos present a tasty mix of boogaloo, son montuno, funk, soul, Afro-Cuban rhythms, disco, bolero, and even a small dose of Flamenco palmas. Vocals are in English and Spanish, following the boogaloo tradition.
Band members include Alberto Sabater Famadas (Percussion) , Carlos Reyes Justo (Percussion) , Daniel Martí Bertran (Drums) , Daniel Posen (Trumpet) , Guim Garcia Balasch (Saxophone), Joan Hernandez Vives (Keyboards) , Juan Carlos Díaz Domingo (Bass) , Manuel Benitez Mulet (Vocals), and Thomas Charles Johnson (Trombone).
Los Fulanos skillfully brings back the Latin Soul sound from the golden years of boogaloo.
