A fine edition of "clandestino" on a hot summer day. Multiple requests today for one my all time fave bands, Cymande. But as rarity would have it, I left all their music at home. I will definately be rocking them in a couple of weeks. Next Monday my special guest will be Mike from Mass Tropica, who just put out a new 45 from los Chapillacs, which we've been jamming in recent weeks. Mike will be bringing by the gems from his digging excursions in Peru. Stay tuned for that!
It goes like this (artist/ song/ album/ label):
