The Rough Guide series is well-established as a quality purveyor of music from across the world, with a hefty set of releases under their belts. This one is a follow up to African and Bollywood Rough Guides, and enlists the expertise of Latin music maestro DJ Lubi.
The comp features some golden era Latin disco (from labels such as Salsoul, from which five tracks on this comp are pulled) as well as modern bands inspired by those trailblazers, including the likes of the UK’s Grupo X and Cali’s Jungle Fire.
The comp is out July 31 on CD and digital.
