CD Review: Various Artists' 'Lula Lounge: Essential Tracks'

Various Artists
Lula Lounge: Essential Tracks
Lula Lounge Records

Latin music from Canada, eh? You bet. This is a compilation of the hottest Latin music heating up the streets of Toronto’s urban center. The fifteen tracks are rich with vibrant percussion ensembles, flashy brass horns, and soulful vocals that transcend borders and classification. You will hear the music of Roberto Linares Brown, Jorge Maza & Tipica Toronto, Changui Habana, Yani Borrell, Cache, Luis Mario Ochoa, Lady Son, Puentes Brothers, Son Ache, Hilario Duran, Jane Bunnett, Telmary, Alberto Alberto, Mi Mambo Pide Campana, and others. The fiery music is upbeat, danceable, and refreshing. Anyone with an interest in Latin, Caribbean, Afro-Caribbean, and dance music will love the sounds on Lula Lounge: Essential Tracks. Moreover, a portion of the proceeds from album sales will go to the Canadian Charity Dancing With Parkinson’s. ~ Matthew Forss
