Introducing Los Hacheros

elWatusi @ 4:38 pm

Available as highly quality mp3/320 or audiophile FLAC formats.

Wow, this one has been playing non-stop here at elWatusi Central. Looking for some cool new salsa with attitude and lots of soulful groove? Well, folks, here’s a very hip New York salsa-son-charanga band that fits the bill. Very loose, intoxicating jams with flute, trombone and a very deep dish of funk. Some original tracks and some covers of classics like Azucar, Mami Me Gusto and Convergencia. With conguero-singer Hector “Papote” Jimenez (Pablo “Chino” Nuñez, Ralphie Irrizary), violinist and trombonist Eddie Venegas (SonSublime, Alfredo Valdes Jr., Johnny Almendra), flute player and percussionist Itai Kriss, tresero Jacob Plasse, and Eddie Valentin on bongos. Very Highly Recommended.

Some good videos…

Purchase Los Hacheros Pilon here.

  1. Many congrats to Los Hacheros’s new generation of Latin music. You guys bring this Guajira music to another level. Loved the sounds how you guys bring it. Must admit, made my hairs stand up. Hope they have much more success.
