Babaliah Loves Mongo Santamaria

Back in the days when I started to explore beyond the black music I used to love at this time, I soon discovered that I enjoyed latin funk, a lot, and Mongo Santamaria was in the cut. This cuban born congero and rumbero played in New York with a lot of big names of his time. He composed beautiful tunes and covered a lot of R'n'B and Soul winners in a latin style. This selection features a lot of genres, in a chronological sort of way : latin-jazz, boogaloo, latin-soul, latin-funk, latin-disco and guaguanco. i hope you'll enjoy
