Edwin Perez “La Voz del Pueblo”


After more than a decade of being the lead singer for La Excelencia and Orquesta SCC, Edwin Perez delivers his first solo album, La Voz Del Pueblo. Ten original tunes in the Salsa Dura style that characterized his music throughout his salsa career.

Think about a cross between the socially conscious lyrics of Ruben Blades and the hardcore sounds of Eddie Palmieri, or Ray Barretto with strong lyrical delivery much in the style of a Gilberto Santa Rosa or Ruben Blades. All tunes were arranged by Maestro Jorge Bringas whom also recorded the bass and directed the musician’s sessions.

This CD has the type of salsa music you want to get up and start dancing to right away but in a few seconds of dancing, you realize you also want to sit down and listen to the lyrics and the stories in them.

A salsa-lover’s oasis of flavorful high quality musicianship tunes, with the collaboration of salsa greats such as Gilberto “Pulpo” Colon Jr.on piano (former Hector Lavoe’s musical director), Luisito Quintero on all percussion (Oscar D’Leon, Spanish Harlem and many others), Jorge Bringas on bass ( Albita, Omara Portuondo, La Excelencia), Rey David Alejandre on trombones, piano and clave (Willie Colon, Richard Bona), Jonathan Powell on trumpets (Eddie Palmieri, La Excelencia), and Angel Rios/Ruben Milano on backup vocals. Don’t pass up on this one!

Latin Explosives “Salsa y Sabor”


An original band, with original music. From lyrics to compositions, Latin Explosives brings Salsa to a new level. This swinging Latin sound is born from the New York City’s own Lower East Side, home to many Salsa greats.

Latin Explosives is a Latin Salsa band started in 2004 in New York City. William Feliciano, the leader of the band, together with the lead singer and song writer Willie May Escalerda, began the journey to accomplish original music, traditional Salsa.

Their style inspired by the old school salseros, aggressive with a romantic twist, will definitely get you dancing. The song “Tres Soneros”, a dedication to three legends of Salsa, Ismael Rivera, Hector Lavoe and Frankie Ruiz, is a fine example of the above.
