1. Product Details

Peace & Rhythm present a reissue of Orquesta El Macabeos Salsa Macabra originally released in 2010. When Salsa Macabra was first released on an unsuspecting public in Orquesta El Macabeos home country of Puerto Rico it generated an aural and intellectual charge of electricity that challenged the status quo of mainstream romantic and popular folkloric Puerto Rican music and flaunted accepted norms of what constituted contemporary high-budget commercial salsa and even salsa dura hard salsa. Independently produced in a small studio in the bands home turf of Trujillo Also the records irreverent attitude indie spirit and brash playing was a shot across the bow to a market that had grown complacent with bedroom and Teflon pop salsa that was the norm in an industry overwhelmed by the success of reggaeton and bachata. The lo-fi Goth aesthetics sense of irony and dark humor as well as social critique that permeate through Salsa Macabra connects them to the DIY metal and punk cultures a musical kinship that at this point has become a clich when describing Macabeo even though they first deemed themselves as rockeros con guille de salseros on this album a Puerto Rican slang way of saying they are rocker wannabe salsa players. Salsa Macabras raw garage salsa - all originals - tells stories of love and heartbreak of rackets and tricksters of pride and deception nightlife and consumerism. To this day the band is known for their uncompromising commitment to the DIY aesthetic and independent business model and with every passing year their audience and reputation grows mainly because they have managed to hit a nerve connect to salseros craving that old-school sound and message but also something that speaks to their own contemporary experiences in an unadulterated and honest manner. This then is the album that started it all with several tunes that have become anthems in the ensuing years. The reason for reissuing the album now is that originally it was not mixed and mastered and the album came out in an extremely limited pressing with the wrong artwork. The recording has now been properly mastered with a quality vinyl pressing the original artwork restored an insert that features full credits and lyrics and new liner notes on the back.
