First release of a new 7” series called “Saoco Now!”, which will offer current covers of classic songs from Puerto Rico’s rich history of dance music. Orquesta el Macabeo and Bio Ritmo, two of today’s most exciting salsa combos, reinterpret two tracks originally released by Cortijo y su Combo and update them in their own irresistible style.
Continuing the journey started with our “¡Saoco!” compilations, the series “Saoco Now!” presents contemporary covers of classics of Puerto Rican dance music. On this first release, two of the most innovative salsa bands working today join forces to pay homage to maestro percussionist and bandleader Rafael Cortijo, a central figure in the repertoire featured on the ¡Saoco! reissues.
