Published on LatinoLA: February 22, 2007
The recent craze and interest all over the world to learn how to dance Salsa, Mambo and Cha Cha Cha is certainly undeniable. The genre is influencing with its hot beats all over the world once more with a force.
Generally all admirer's of this genre make listening reference to big powerful orchestras of the late 50's and early 60's, with the big sounds that clearly established the beat and craze to dance to these exciting hot rhythms and styles.
Today, besides regular Salsa bands coming from the Caribbean and Latin America, a re-birth is emerging focusing on those sounds and styles of that Golden Era. We no longer need to listen to the old and not have the opportunity to listen or dance to it live, for now we have Eguie Castrillo & His Orchestra. This orchestra is based in Boston, Massachusetts in the USA.
Puerto Rican Band Leader, Percussionist and Timbale player extraordinaire Eguie Castrillo put together this 20 piece Orchestra that will not only take you back to the time when this music was high energy and dancing to it was a must, it brings it to the current times, with modern recordings and sounds that will without a doubt make you want to get off your feet and dance and take your breath away. If you are a Salsa lover, you have to have their CD and listen to it, because when you do, you will want to dance and listen to it all over again.
While listening to what was then is certainly great, you should definitely listen to what is now. Mambo is back and it is back with Eguie Castrillo & His Orchestra. Grammy award winning Castrillo has played and toured all over the world with artist like Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Arturo Sandoval, Michel Camilo, Jennifer Lopez, KC & The Sunshine Band, Steve Winwood and many more...
