Latin fusion shaking with Yerba Colorá’s ‘Menéalo’

Menéalo means ‘shake it’ in Spanish and that is exactly the vibe on ‘Menéalo‘. This is a vibrant song from Yerba Colorá to get our day started.

Yerba Colorá is an international latin fusion band based in Marburg, Germany. The band was formed in 2016 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Naomi Keates from Manchester in England. Paired up with percussionist Sibori Zuñiga Molina from Cusco in Peru. The line-up was completed with Jörg Sebald from Marburg in Germany on the bass and Corey Taylor from Adelaide in Australia on lead guitar. The band’s influences span from rock to cumbia, with an affectionate nod to son cubano and the general motto “play whatever you feel like”. I love this vibe and energy. You also feel that this is a band that was created organically. With a world-wise lineup, this is an international band of note.

Taken off ‘¡Eh! P.‘, this is the 1st release and what a joyful sound it is. With stunning female vocals that sound so scrumptious in my ears. I could see myself shaking it with old friends and new friends. This is happy music that is much appreciated in 2020.

Stream this on Spotify and enjoy the vibe.

Sultry beats emanate from Ale From SummerClub’s ”Sabanas”

Vocalist, Producer and part of Thenasa8, Ale From SummerClub is one busy musician. He alternates between London and Madrid. Ale makes really good music too and this is his time to shine as a solo artist.

Sabanas” means ‘sheet’ in Spanish. We all know where this is going. This is a stupendously sexy song that makes me want to comb my hair and put on a new shirt. Sadly I have no hair and my washing is in the dryer so I’ll let Ale From SummerClub do his thing.

This is summer house all the way with quite possibly the naughtiest song of 2020. The beat hypnotizes you and you just want to remember those fly dance moves you might know. This is love music with lots of groovy beats to make your crush blush all night.

With the single coming off the ”LUCKY13” EP from the 1st June 2020, the timing couldn’t be better here for a party release. With the world slowly opening up, it would be surprising not to see this song pushed on radio and clubs.

This is quality party music to wash your ”Sabanas” for.

To hear this beat with so much charm, get your fingers clicking on the Soundcloud link.
