1. Portenos y Gringos - New CD by Jürgen Schwenkglenks

There is a new CD by the label “Danza y Movimiento”. Of course, our own releases are something very special to us, and the new work by Jürgen Schwenkglenks is not only interesting for the Tango community.

Stefan Franzen writes about it in the magazine Jazzthing:

“Tango from Bavaria is not part of the regular menu of Música Latina. Guitarist and composer Jürgen Schwenkglenks is from Passau, but he also has excellent connections to the Rio de la Plata, a part of his second CD was recorded in Buenos Aires and he leaves the intro to the bandoneon player Quena Taborda for a solo recital. But then he takes you to a journey through valses and milongas he composed himself.

They all have an airy, chamber music-like face- Schwenkglenks and Co. rather create the intimate introspective and not the rousing affect. Afro interludes with percussion and cello cause barbs, a nice Chorinho with a chuckling clarinet is included to show the admiration to the old Rio- The impressionistic "Central Partk" has an elaborate soundtrack character. An exciting connection from the river Danube to the New Worlds.

2. New Latin and Brazil CDs

CHI CHI PERALTA - Mas Que Suficiente

The former conga player of Juan Luis Guerra`s band 4:40 from Santo Domingo has created a very convincing 4th CD and a multifacetted musical style. The songs include Caribbean, African and even Brazilian rhythms, which are put accross perfectly by Chi Chi on the vocal level. Surely one of the last summer CDs this year.

CHI CHI PERALTA - Mas Que Suficiente


The renowned Brazlian actor Seu Jorge, last seen as the "musician aboard" in the movie "Deep Sea Divers" with Bill Murray, had been a great musician long before his film career started. This, his second, CD will hopefully give him the well deserved attention of Europe. The songs are characterised by his pleasantly rough voice and the experienced control of the guitar. There is soft Bossa Nova as well as danceable pop music.

Insider tip !!!


WILLY CHIRINO - Cubanisimo (CD & DVD)

Again, Willy Chirino underlines the attachment to his motherland CUBA. This CD is therefore a BEST OF... of his "Cuban" songs. This is no Salsa Cubana, but the lyrics deal entirely with the topic CUBA, politically and socialistically. But the music is wonderful Salsa at its best !!! The DVD includes 5 videos and a “Making of...”-documentation of the video ‘El Diablo Llego’
