This 2013 release by the delightfully odd Meridian Brothers isn’t as “new” as I generally like songs for this daily tune series to be, but its fresh blend of Latin inventiveness and overall entertaining weirdness calls for an exception.
I came across “El Gran Pájaro De Los Andes”, or “The Big Bird From the Andes” when searching for a band from Bogota –and I got sucked in quickly. I enjoyed it so much it that it duly served as the soundtrack to my morning workout routine.
Since you’re probably at least half as curious as I, here’s another, the trippiest salsa you’ll hear today, guaranteed: a live recording of “Salsa del Zombie”. Enjoy!
