Hats off to US label Electric Cowbell who unleash yet another funky 7 inch from another live band you may have never heard of! Orquesta El Macabeo are a 12 piece salsa band from Puerto Rico established in 2008, with two albums already under their belt. The music they play is not strictly purist salsa but it's heavily influenced by the style, incorporating accessible lyrics, catchy melodies and irresistible instrumentation. Two energetic tunes are presented here; ''El Sueno'' with its scatting Hammond, and on the flipside the more vocal led fast n furious ''Cogiendo''. Perfect examples of the genre for anyone with a smidgeon of interest in Latin music.
