ROCAFORT RECORDS: Mi Bomba Sono (CELIA CRUZ)/ A Bailar Oriza (JOEY PASTRANA)

ROCAFORT RECORDS: Mi Bomba Sono (CELIA CRUZ)/ A Bailar Oriza (JOEY PASTRANA) Rocafort Records release a double celebration of the work of Cuban songwriter Silvestre Méndez on this 45 release which features versions of two of his biggest songs. On the A side you get Celia ‘Queen of Salsa’ a.k.a. ‘Queen of Latin Music’ Cruz’s incendiary 1973 Afro-Cuban version of Mi Bomba Sono – backed by the legendary La Sonora Matancera. On the flip meanwhile Joey Pastrana (and his Orquesta, naturally) funk-up one of Mendez’s most-covered numbers A Bailar Oriza. Comes with rear cover liner notes by salsa/ b-boy commando DJ Timber and is so caliente, the record label have even put out a disclaimer with it!
(Out 8 May on Rocafort Records)
