La Maxima 79 “Regresando al Guaguanco”


La Maxima 79 - Regresando al Guaguanco

La Maxima 79’s sole objective is to revive the golden era of salsa keeping in mind at all times the needs of salsa dj’s and dancers worldwide. La Maxima 79 brings two worlds together; it’s the place where DJ’s and bands meet. This new and unique approach is possible due to the two band leaders of La Maxima 79; Fabrizio Zoro and Massimo Scalici.

Fabrizio Zoro has many years of experience spinning as a DJ at festivals and parties all over Europe. This experience has taught him the dynamics of the dance floor and what salsa dancers really want. He is also a very established percussionist and created the idea of this project. Massimo Scalici is one of Italy’s best salsa musicians, he is responsible for all arrangements on this album, created the orchestrations for all the musicians and plays the piano on all tracks. Not really familiar with the “Guaguancò” style of the 60’s and 70’s Massimo Scalici shows his enormous talent by not just adapting to this style but simply taking it to another level. He brings an enormous musical know-how to Maxima 79. The both influences created a combination of vibrant and electrifying songs that give the CD an addictive hook. La Maxima 79 … brings quality old school salsa into the new millennium.
