Madre Rumba Padre Son
Edgardo Cambón, a major figure in the Bay Area Salsa scene and his band 'Candela' celebrate the release of their first North American debut CD. The 12 tracks demonstrates Edgardo's versatility as a poetic lyricist, composer, skilled percussionist and 'Sonero' (singer, improviser). Edgardo's clear tenor voice and the roaring trombone sounds, adding a strong Cuban 'open groove' on the rhythm session make this recording a must. Highlights of the CD are the title track, a swinging Salsa/Timba that is making dancers 'wet' at all major Latin Dance Clubs, the Merengue 'Del Caribe Vengo' originally recorded by the a cappella Cuban group 'Sampling' recorded here for the first time with full orchestration and Edgardo's own Salsa version of John Lennons 'Imagine' with additional improvised verses in Spanish and creative rhythm twists. But it is in the Bolero (Ballad) 'Pedirte Perdón' where Edgardo shows what a superb vocal gift he has to offer.
