Jacob Plasse of Los Hacheros, Torchbearers for the Golden Age of Latin Music

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Jacob Plasse of Los Hacheros joins us to preview the youthful old-school Latin quintet's exhilarating new album, Bambulaye. Los Hacheros revisit classic dance styles like son montuno, guaracha and salsa, as well as bomba, a fiery traditional rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico.

Jacob will also introduce us to other artists on his Chulo record label - and spin some of the songs that got him hooked on the classic styles that have inspired Los Hacheros.

And if you like what you hear, catch the band in action Sunday nights at 8 at Verlaine, 110 Rivington St. on the Lower East side (and keep an eye out for other shows at Los Hacheros' website or Los Hacheros' facebook page).

Guitars from Agadez is all Bombino - acoustic (and pretty clean recordings) and electric (all pretty over-driven). 2009 release:

I saw Gatemouth Brown a long time ago. He was a talented and ornery SOB.

That was the Golden Age for sure. It is so far away from what Latin America puts out today. Thank you Rob.
