¡Gózalo!: Bugalú Tropical, Vol. 4

Tropical forms ranging from son to mambo may not have sprung up natively in land-bound, mountainous Peru, but when they arrived, they were embraced just as fervently as in Cuba or Mexico or Colombia, by just as talented a group of performers. And by the time the '60s arrived, Peruvian artists were on their way to the groovy, streetwise boogaloo form at roughly the same time as Spanish Harlem. This fourth volume in Vampi Soul's survey focuses like a laser on the late '60s, but there's enough good music to justify it. Taken as a whole, these tracks display Peruvian artists as frenetic as earlier mambo orchestras, and less grooving than the majority of Cuban, Puerto Rican, or American groups were taking the boogaloo forms. And thrown into the mix are plenty of descargas, charangas, and mambos. Although the Peruvian scene was its own animal, it's clear they were listening closely to the sounds of Pan-America: covers of both Willie Colón's "Aguanile" and the Chivirico Davila standard "La Guarachera" are heard.
