¿Quién Manda? – Lazarito Valdés y Bamboleo

£6.00£9.50

Six tracks from ¿Quién Manda? were included in the

2015 Bis Music compilation Caramelo Con Picante. There’s only one track I’d recommend that was omitted, No Me Critiquen. The introduction to this employs over used chord progressions which resolve predictably, but it’s at least leavened by dynamic percussion. When it kicks, though, I think it’s worth waiting for.
Of the tracks borrowed by Caramelo Con Picante,  musically Chichina and A Lo Cubano stand out above the rest. A Lo Cubano has some of the energy and dynamism of a former period while the dissonance, frequent efectos and tumbao of Chichina draw me back for more. Notable more for their entry into the field of feminism than the quality of their composition, are two songs, La Domadora and, not to be confused with NG La Banda, La Que Manda.
In the remainder of the album you’ll find Se Acabaron Los Guapos En La Habana which reminds of the less imaginative end of what is often called “Salsa Dura.”  Voy A Seguir Sin Ti occupies a similar space within the spectrum of Salsa Romantica.
