Arranque, the second Latin summer collectionI hope you have a splendid summer, but if you happen to have a wet season, like most of us in Central Europe you might want to feel some extra warmth. What about a bunch of Latin tunes sung in Spanish and Portugues (and one of them in French)?
The compilation opens with a Dutch and a Belgian track (by Zuco 103 and by Toots Thielemans) and guides you through some older songs (Cannonball Adderley). And I'ld like to share with you some powerfull tunes of today (Carl Cox and Bellini), without ignoring some smoother latin sounds (Marcos Valle and Spyro Gyra).
Enjoy the music, and the summer...
