Progressive Latin music aint but in the hands of a German living in the heartlands of south America perhaps thats changed. I am SURE this music is and never going to be accepted widely by latin America so its our open minded western Caucasians who will likely appreciate Mr. Coconuts experiments in electro Latino funk!
Upbeat in your ear rhythmic latin influenced electronic replete with Roland analog drum boxes, acoustic congos, bongos, shakers and the expected vocoder vocalizing. Fun to listen to and not as "weird" as one might expect. There alot of complexity to some arrangements/compositions and at times a little fusion thrown in for good measure.

Tasty and refreshing latin-flavoured music, this album bestows the genre with a new level of awareness, using electronic gear only, makes it sound even better than the traditional latin american approach and generally more appealing to a western ear. The rhythms are extremely addictive, even if you thought you could never like latin american music, Señor Coconut is going to prove you wrong, especially if you are already into quality electronic music. Go listen and buy the album is well worth it!!!
