Chino y Su Conjunto Melao “Melao Is Back”


MELAO IS BACK!! … Cruz de Jesus … a rather messianic tone which rings true to the extent that “Cruz’s” impact on Salsa is religious by many accounts. As a matter of fact a certain Eddie Palmieri, a papal existence in his own right, can be quoted as saying that the future of Latin music would end up in the hands of Cruz (or “Chino”by those who not just knew him but were intimately familiar with his ability to greatly weigh in on the course of a genre of music which has been long poured out cementing its listening value both culturally and now historically). The future is now – MELAO IS BACK!

While today’s latin artist effectively reverberate throughout a wider audience giving the non-Spanish speaking listeners a sazonado taste of Latin flavor ala Pitbull – Melao is your throwback to the glory days of Salsa when Fania ruled the airwaves. Take a close, careful listen to these four tracks and you’ll invariably sense the canary-like melodic style of Lavoe, Colon, and de La Paz whispering the highly refined sounds of a musical movement whose impact remains relevant today. Lay back and enjoy Chino’s tribute to El Rey de la Radio, Polito Vega while enjoying the background vocals of “La calma de la palmas” el cronista de la salsa, the one and only Angel Mendez.

MELAO IS BACK! Listen, dance if you must and please enjoy these genuine sounds of the sentimentally smooth and soothing salsa de el Chino – Cruz de Jesus.
