-------------------------------------------------
Various Artists
"PUTUMAYO PRESENTS: LATIN BEAT"
(Putumayo, 2011)
-------------------------------------------------
A nice, multi-textured mix of traditional Latin dance styles -- son, cumbia, reggae, flamenco -- mixed with traces of dancetronica, funk, pop, hip-hop and rock. I like that most of the songs seem to come from a more traditional, Latin-American base, rather than adding "Latin spice" to modern pop songs: the groove is both heavier and more subtle, and several tracks have a pleasantly narcotic, hypnotic groove. Some artists, like Grupo Lokito, play straight-up old-school son while others, such as New Zealand's Sola Rosa tweak things around and bend your ears a bit. Not surprisingly, Columbia and Cuba are the best represented countries, although Spain, the US and UK also get their licks in... I would have enjoyed a bit of Mexico's "Nortec" scene in the mix (some amazing stuff happening there!) but like many Putumayo sets, this can point you in some interesting directions. If you like old-school, but have new ears, you could give this a spin and see what happens. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To World Music)

If you ask me, I would have to say it's really good. But when I rate an item 4 stars, it means that there is a flaw. In this case it's the song length.For all of the artists that have an album with that specific song on it, they need to look at how long the song is on that album and have that same exact length for the song on the album.
If that fact was true, this album would be about 15 minutes longer but that's okay. It's still really good.

This album offers some old school stuff like the classic Tequila, which my wife and grandmother were groving to the first time they heard it. It is a great album for those that like to hear traditional latin music styles that have been modernized, vice a lot of what is heard in the radio, which has techno or pop base with some latin instrument, technique, etc put on top.

A great selection of up beat songs that are not over the top too fast or loud. Great to enjoy while sipping an island cocktail on your patio, deck or front porch on a warm summer night!
